So, my hope would be that we start moving away from that model.

While addon repos have indeed been dodgy regarding stability, they
have been very valuable, so your assessment seems quite
nearsighted.

Yes, it's difficult to make them hold to the same standards as
stable distributions. But unlike rolling distributions, you don't
have to risk your whole system (and time) to update some component
you absolutely need.


I would agree.

Me, for instance, like a stable distro, but I do like to keep
LibreOffice more current, as it affects my work. I will, most
probably, not update KDE, but I certainly will want to update separate
parts; which, I don't know yet.
