Public bug reported:

It would be nice to start a project like Debian volatile, specially
since Dapper will be out there for 5 years.

>From their site (http://volatile.debian.net/).:

"Some packages aim at fast moving targets like spam filtering and virus
scanning, and even via using updated virus patterns, this doesn't really
work for the full time of a stable release. The main issue of volatile
is to allow system administrators to update their systems in a nice,
consistent way without getting the drawbacks of using unstable, even
without getting the drawback for the selected packages."
