Hi All, Hi Fabio,

I apologize for my (very) bad english.

I have a only one stupid question about Dapper server platform support.

I know that Dapper Desktop will have support for 3 years and Dapper
Server for 5 years. I have read from this mailing list that both use the
same apt repositary.

Ok my question is: what is exactly supported for 5 years?

I suppose that not all packages in main repositary have 5 years
supported (otherwise also Dapper Desktop have 5 years support and it
isn't true).

Only for kernel package i don't any doubt: Server have it's particulary
kernel package (5 years support) that differ from Desktop one (3 years

If i want will install on my server _only_ 5 years supported packages:
how can do it (in apt language)?

Thanks in advance.
