Rationale and Definition

Exception List

The list below is a comprehensive list of packages which could be considered as a part of the exception list - meaning that these packages' build configurations could be pushed to the stable-proposed branch, as a part of the effort to address bugs, usability issues, and security vulnerabilities. These updates are then made available in the stable repositories after testing - regardless of the version changes, and whether new features are to be introduced.
