I followed packages news and updates subforum, and I noticed that a lot of packages are created for both - 5.8 and 5.9 repo. Also, I've noticed that 5.8 repo contains a lot of interesting packages which are not present in 5.9 (quite logical). So, I have few questions:
1. For how long repo for older VL release (in this case 5.8 ) is being maintained/updated? Exact period of time or until next release (in this case 6.0)?
2. Packages that are present in 5.8 repo, but still not in 5.9 - are those packages going to be created for 5.9 repo automatically by VL's packagers team or they are created on demand? In example, Gnome?
3. How safe is to use packages from 5.8 in 5.9?
4. When you create repo for new release (in this case 5.9), how do you choose which packages to put in extra? Fixed selection or something else?
Thank you in advance!
