It is "security stable". Let's take this new notation from now on.
"Security Stable" doesn't have to be all security related.

Tell you what - you convince the -stable team, and I'll go along with it..

Better be "stable" and "base". is the latest stable, 2.6.13
is the latest base.

I think the idea of having the most recent "base release," and -stable, and -rc, and -git, are desirable, with some clear terms. Those of us who started with ftp and never felt the need for using a GUI have long since learned what to keep and where to find it, but I bet most people use the web by now.
