Hei Martin,

Do you have any chance to influence the naming of the PPAs?

As recently also discussed on the QGIS mailinglist, packages from a repository 
named "unstable" can get blocked by system administrators (who not necessarily 
will take the time to try to understand what is behind all applications), 
regardless if I as a user tell them that "unstable" actually means "current 
release"...

Would be nice to have a more admin-friendly name there...

Cheers
Stefan

Subject: [GRASS-dev] ubuntu gis policy

Hi all,

recently ubuntugis maintainers changed their policy. This means that currently 
is used this workflow:

OSGeoLive nightly --> UbuntuGIS Testing --> UbuntuGIS Unstable --> UbuntuGIS 
Stable

What does it means for GRASS?

1) experimental packages (like Release Candidates) are uploaded to Testing PPA 
[1]
2) final version packages are uploaded to Testing and Unstable [2]
3) Stable PPA can contain older version [3]

For user who want to help with testing experimental packages: please use 
Testing PPA otherwise use Unstable (if you prefer up-to-date
version) or Stable PPA (you prefer stability - slightly older versions).

Martin
