I just wanted to say thanks for implementing such a great idea. Being a home user I decided recently I really wanted to got to a rolling release distribution, I hate re-installing the OS every few months. But it seemed that rolling release inherently meant unstable and a pain to set up. LMDE with Update Packs has found a great niche in having a balance between stability and timely updates, along with using a rolling release and having a lot of pre-installed packages unavailable elsewhere.
Makes me wish I could do more to help out, it seems like a lot of this is done by Clem but hopefully I'm just ignorant of the team of people doing all this great stuff I need a modicum of stability so I don't think I'll be able to move to Incoming. I'm not a full software developer (just DSP code ) so I don't think I'll help that way. I guess I'll just have to donate!
