      According to this notice from back in June, this COULD be close to the Bookworm release.

          Yeah, that’s more like the “norm” in Debian. Even when they’ve “supposedly” decided to have “more frequent” releases, the time lapse between major releases seems to be 3-5 years; the best they’ve done is move slightly closer to the first interval once or twice; otherwise it’s the same lengthy release cycle.

          On the other hand, I’ve had consistently good results over the years simply by using Debian Sid and ignoring release dates!
          (The only “care” I exercise in this scheme is that I watch for intervals where there are large numbers of packages withheld from going into, or out of, Sid). In these cases, I hold back on updates until the packages in Sid release to Testing in the usual manner, rather than the hold near release and rash of changes immediately after release.
