Debian and its clones Last September, some of the Debian Linux distribution's leadership wanted to make sure that Etch, the next version of Debian, arrived on its December 4th due date. Almost two months later, though, according to the February 17th Release Critical Bug Report memo to the Debian Developers Announcement list, there are still 541 release critical bugs.

Security on Etch

Etch is perfectly usable now.

However, what is the situation RE security patches? I know that stable (Sarge) gets patches and I thought Etch had some sort of security patch system in place.

But using Etch on backend Samba and Database servers has been working well for a while.
