In Unable to create new DHCP entry when PXE Loader is changed the issue of the “stable” link in the deb repos (in this case, Xenial) being out of date came up again.
We’ve talked about dropping this before, so I’m raising it formally. I think it’s probably safer to only use the explicit numbered repos, and that we should drop the “stable” links entirely. Once done, a short post would be sent to the Announcements list so that people know to update their APT list files. @ekohl will this impact the installer at all?
I don’t think this is hugely controversial (we’ve discussed it before) so as a trial of the process we discussed previously, I’m setting a poll on this right away, and I’ve tagged the RFC with “voting”. It’s set to auto-close in two weeks.
Should we remove the stable symlink in the deb repos
