Long Term (Security) Support für Debian Squeeze

Beitrag von linrunner »

Eine interessante Entwicklung bei Debian und gute Nachricht für die Nutzer. Sicherlich hat hier die Konkurrenz u.a. durch Ubuntu eine Rolle gespielt.

This is an advance notice that regular security support for Debian
GNU/Linux 6.0 (code name "squeeze") will be terminated on the 31st of

However, we're happy to announce that security support for squeeze is
going to be extended until February 2016, i.e. five years after the
initial release. This effort is driven by various interested parties /
companies which require longer security support. See the "LTS" section
of https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a ... 00004.html
for the initial announcement.

The details are currently being sorted out and a more detailed
announcement will be made soon.

Brief advance FAQ (but you should really wait for the more detailed

Q: What's the difference between regular security support and the LTS
A: squeeze-lts is only going to support i386 and amd64. If you're
running a different architecture you need to upgrade to Debian 7
(wheezy). Also there are going to be a few packages which will not
be supported in squeeze-lts (e.g. a few web-based applications
which cannot be supported for five years). There will be a tool to
detect such unsupported packages.

Q: Does this mean that Debian 7 (wheezy) and/or Debian 8 (jessie) will
have five years security support as well?
A: Likely, we'll see how squeeze-lts turns out. If there's sufficient
support it will be continued for later releases as well. Also, see

Q: Is additional help needed?
A: Absolutely. squeeze-lts is not handled by the Debian security team,
but by a separate group of volunteers and companies interested in
making it a success (with some overlap in people involved). So, if
you're a company using Debian and seeing a benefit in security
support for five years, get in touch with team@security.debian.org
and we'll see how you can help (if you e.g. don't have the manpower /
know how but are willing to contribute, we can point you to a list
of Debian consultants)
