Thanks for the update
I like this because it moves us one step closer to the New Stable.
Re: the update packs, I have two computers with LMDE pointing to Latest. Is it reasonable to think these will get updates of wheezy with bug fixes as they get through bug squashing mode? Should we basically have updates that put us on equal footing with the wheezy by the time the New Stable is released? I ask this because I would like to change all my sources to wheezy when the New Stable is released.
