Debian and its clones Earlier this month, we reported that Debian had announced a new release schedule; a freeze during December, a release some time in the first half of the following year. After outcries from the Debian community, the December freeze aspect of the plan was reversed. Since most of the ire about this situation seemed to be directed towards Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth decided to step in and offer to put several Canonical employees to work on Debian instead of Ubuntu.

Having developers fixing up bugs in Debian will undoubtedly help both Debian and Ubuntu. Ubuntu bringing in more stable packages initially will reduce possible breakage later.

You are trolling when your argument boils down to "They broke packages before so they'll do it to you too!!"

You can look at what actually happening with Debian migration to Python2.6:
