Rolling and Point

Postby AlanWalker » Fri Jun 06, 2014 11:46 pm

I'm trying to get a handle on the differences a rolling-release and a point-release; while the difference would seem to be obvious I've come to these questions: isn't someone who's following/running Debian's Sid actually engaged in something of a "rolling release", and are those who follow/run Debian's Testing actually using a semi-rolling release and, finally, in Debian, is or is not Stable the only point-release (excluding backports)?

TIA

sid is rolling. testing is also rolling but it has slower pace than debian sid. it also lots more stable than sid. as for the final question, no. debian have stable and old-stable. the old stable still get support for debian.
