Always-Releasable Debian Means Shorter Waits

It took nearly two years for Debian 7.0 to reach the masses. Lars Wirzenius and co-writer Russ Allbery (Debian hacker) say a big portion of that was eaten up by the 10-month freeze, which just stressed everyone out. Wheezy’s freeze was four months longer than past releases and at that Wirzenius feels they are too long.
