debian has a long history of being clueless:
old packages in new releases, untested packages in releases
(mailscanner did not, and was never going to, work out of thebox in a
recent release)

debian has history of thinking it knows better than upstream:
openssl screwup they told debian was wrong but debian released it
anyway causing grief for not only debian systems but all systems
including windows that used certs generated on a debi\an server.

and dont get me started on debians release/ftp manager and the
personal biases there either, shall I go? I can but it would be a bore
for most.
