>From lurking on irc on #debian-cd lately around the time of release and
on various lists at the moment :
The daily/weekly builds are disabled at the moment to allow time for the
mirrors to catch up - and for Steve to catch his breath after generating
The cron jobs that run them also produce verbose error messages when
they don't run - so they've been turned off for the moment.
We know that a release 1 of Lenny is planned for the end of March
timeframe - which will allow us all to patch any problems, fix odd bugs
that crept in and so on. [Nasty one on certain older Sparc machines, for
It's possible that Steve will then turn the weeklies back on after that.
In the meantime, testing is about to get a hammering as all the changes
that have been held back prior to release of Lenny will hit at once
unless a lot of work is done to stage these transitions. That task, in
itself, is almost equivalent to a mini release. Allow dato and other
folk some slack as they arrange this.
Today, and potentially for the next couple of months if you want to
build a new system on Squeeze:
Build a minimalist system to start with. Grab a Lenny netinst, install the
base system only, change your /etc/apt/sources.list
to read squeeze instead of lenny,
aptitude update ; aptitude full-upgrade
and go on from there. That will keep you up to date with the state of
testing as it evolves. If you've already got a Lenny box up and
running, just change /etc/apt/sources.list.
Today, the divergence between Lenny / Squeeze is relatively small but
differences are growing daily.
This all IMHO
Hope this helps,
