Title: Buster Release statistics
Post by: paxmark1 on May 02, 2021, 09:49:16 PM
The upstream binaries for Sparky in Debian has entered the "Hard Freeze" stage, actually some time ago. 

It is a decent working hypothesis or maybe just a guess that it will take longer than usual to achieve the release of "Bullseye"   as the new stable to replace the present "Buster."

A short look at the critical packages shows  things  needing some love and more than a few final python 3 fixes needing to be done.  In these times where some parts of the world are reeling current events, it is to be expected that the labour of love that is free open sourced software would slow its pace. 

Keep safe all.
