20:48 ronsavage Recently I mentioned the tin # of exceptions to my policy of never installing dev versions. Obviously Marpa::R2 is sufficiently stable to make it safe to install.
20:50 ronsavage The other cases are (a) Graphviz. Sometime I install a dev v. to work around a bug. (b) The GIMP. It often auto-exits, so once or twice I tried a dev version, but it did not help.
20:52 ronsavage (c) UltraEdit. I often report tiny errors, since it's a Unix port of a Windows program. They let me download dev versions to test fixes. ATM Nothing else comes to mind.
21:10 Aria I'm much the same. But an increasing number of packages have no discernable dev vs final releases.
21:23 ronsavage My policy is that if it's in Debian stable repo, it's a final release, whereas Testing and Unstable, are, err, unstable. And I virtually never ever test a dev v. of a Perl module.
