Hmm yes this is likely obvious but: is it true that packages in sid are
updated frequently? I mean: it is a waste of manpower to keep a package
up-to-date, e.g. if stable has version 1, and unstable passes trough
version 2,3,4,5, then the stable is released again, what is the
motivation in putting versions 2,3,4 in debian (apart from ubuntu :). I
am not _questioning_ this, I am wondering if maintainers in debian are
actually worried to constantly update packages in unstable.
