Why is it more likely that it's unstable? It's more likely that packages
actively maintained in Ubuntu will want to follow Debian's "trunk" more
closely, but that doesn't account for all packages in Ubuntu that are
merges; for many packages, I think merges from testing address our needs and
carry less risk of regression.
At any rate, 'bzr merge-package' does support both testing and unstable even
if merges.u.c doesn't.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
