Debian and its clones A configuration mistake in the new Debian Linux distribution has forced a fix less than 24 hours after the software was released. "New installs [of Debian 3.1 from CD and DVD] will not get security updates by default," said Debian developer Colin Watson in an e-mail warning. Installations from floppy disks or network servers were not affected.

It's day this is a bug both so trivial to fix, easy to notice, and embarrasingly obvious that it should make the Debian release managers hold their heads in shame.

I'd say it's probably caused by the long time everyone has been using sarge. Every devel has probably noticed it, edited the line months ago, and forgot about it.

Not a flame, I love Debian, but this made me laugh.
