Not trying to argue with you, but simply trying to discern the
differences between the release cycles of DF and FBSD, it seems to me
that DF's RELEASE release cycle is a mixture of FBSD's Release and
Stable with some native features.
DF's patches are committed without thorough testing (like FBSD Stable)
and RELEASE sub-versions are bumped up without code freezes, release
candidates or betas (native to DF).
How can you state that patches are commited without thorough testing?
First of all you don't know how much testing the developers actually do
before committing the patch. And secondly, patches which go to
-release are security and bug fixes ONLY. We don't add features to
-release like freebsd does on -stable. You really need to read
documentation before making such claims.
When DF full RELEASE versions are bumped up (I think) there are code
freezes (like FBSD Release).
You are wrong again. It is a feature freeze, no code freeze.
If this is in fact the way DF RELEASE releases come out, I fail to see
why a 1.6.2 would be "safer" than the official 1.6.0 (or for that
1.4.3 vs. 1.40).
It is not, in fact.
I'm simply trying to plan for the best release to install on the
Always the latest release.
