Original OSNews Interviews A few weeks ago, we asked for the OSNews community to help with some questions we were going to ask Aaron Griffin from the Arch Linux team, and the response was glorious and somewhat phenomenal. We added those questions to our own and sent them on over, and then we were surprised by receiving not only Aaron Griffin's responses but answers from various individuals from the team.

Simple answer: Don't use the [testing] repo.

That said, it doesn't completely avoid problems. But I'm highly impressed at the relatively small amount of breakage, and relatively minor nature thereof, that Arch has in a rolling release system. It is orders of magnitude better than when I tried Gentoo a couple years back (Gentoo may have improved since then).

On the flip side, using [testing] and providing feedback helps get packages better tested.
