Se terminará el soporte de seguridad para la version 3.1

Hoy, a las 10:40 (hora local mia) me llegó un correo con un anuncio oficial:

Security Support for Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 to be terminated on March 31st

One year after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias ‘etch’ and
nearly three years after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias
‘sarge’ the security support for the old distribution (3.1 alias
‘sarge’) is coming to an end next month.  The Debian project is proud
to be able to support its old distribution for such a long time and
even for one year after a new version has been released.

The Debian project has released Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias ‘etch’ on
the 8th of April 2007.  Users and Distributors have been given a
one-year timeframe to upgrade their old installations to the current
stable release.  Hence, the security support for the old release of
3.1 is going to end in March 2007 as previously announced.

Previously announced security updates for the old release will continue
to be available on

Esto significa que los usuarios que usan actualmente Debian Sarge en sus servidores, tendrán que actualizar sus sistemas. Es fácil, nada mas cambian lo que dice “sarge” por  “etch” en su sources.list
