Debian Testing Gets Security Support

The Debian Testing Security Team just announced the beginning of full security support for Debian’s “testing” distribution!

The lack of security support was one of the main problems with “testing”. You had to pull security fixes from “unstable” or even build your own packages to keep it secure.

I hope they have the manpower to keep up with security issues. Debian’s main security team, which only provides updates for the “stable” distribution, had some problems over the last months.
