This would be good, for those that want to stay updated in; all Apps, to include the Repositories and the Linux Kernel.
A Mint Debian with a rolling release makes a great idea. Daily, weekly or monthly updates/upgrades ... works for me.
furthermore these applicaitons (such as new mozillas, chromes...) are already tested (they go from alhpa, beta, rc to stable) and considered stable. why they need to be re-tested and rebranded as enough stable to be put in the repositories for the next OS version again? thi sis soethgin i can't get my mind arround. linux updater should always offer latest stable versions of applicaitons. instead i believe it actually only offers patches (security mostly) of the same version of software.
