    Following the link to https://deb.debian.org, I learned about these centralized mirrors. I don't know how long they have been around, but it's more uniform than what I had. I changed my sources.list to:
    Code:
    deb https://deb.debian.org/debian           stretch            main contrib non-free
    deb https://deb.debian.org/debian           stretch-updates    main contrib non-free
    deb https://deb.debian.org/debian           stretch-backports  main contrib non-free
    deb https://deb.debian.org/debian-security  stretch/updates    main contrib non-free
    #deb https://mozilla.debian.net             stretch-backports  firefox-release

      If you missed it from yesterday, Debian 9.0 is expected in June.
      Or if someone missed my smelling abilities back from february, when it was frozen

      ...smells like june to me...

        Quite a while now but they only really worked well with the version of APT in Stretch or newer.

          I cannot wait until 9.0 is out the door. I won't use it but it's messing up all of Sid for nearly 9 months now.

            Yeah what's up with that Marc Driftmeyer , they stop pulling new application versions into Sid and experimental? When's newer kernel coming for example.
            I'm actually going to use stretch to replace wheezy webserver though but home machines Sid.

              Not sure who that was intended for debianxfce but I pin experimental low and run Sid. Otherwise your suggestion good for someone wanting fresher than their stable.

                I only recommend using Testing during Freeze, for people who wanna do early testing of new release. When Freeze is not there what is the point, at that time either Sid or Stable are recommended.

                I never understood debianxfce , he seems just wanna fuck, but not to be fucked - like trolls usually do

                Testing is shit, Testing is nothing. Particulary if you are not interested in release like debianxfce is not . Well it does not even have codename as it is just for testing - it is so obvious

                  Just can take some time for a fix to propagate to testing.

                    Just whole purpose of Debian development branches (here i upload (Sid), here i do testing (Testing), here i do temporary things/experiments (experimental)). are to make release aka Stable. If it is not for that purpose, infrastructure would be entirely different.
