The current DebianStable is sarge. '''oldstable''' is a codename for the previous Debian stable repository, as long as security updates are provided. It is not just a name of the ''old'' stable version(s) of Debian.
Line 15: Line 13:
Next stable will be Etch (probabily at the end of 2006), but for now is the current DebianTesting, When security updates are not provided anymore for oldstable, the repository is moved to http://archive.debian.org/.

As some know, Sid will always be unstable (DebianUnstable code-named DebianSid). <<DebianCodenameLink(oldstable)>> is the current oldstable.
## Currently there is no ''oldstable'' (previous stable distribution 'Sarge' was moved to archive on XX-XX-XXXX)
## Currently there is no ''oldstable'' (but the previous stable distribution 'squeeze' gets a special [[LTS|Long-Term-Support]])
