Interesting idea, but I don’t think it is possible in the desktop segment because apt repos lack such analytics. The closest alternative is to ask people to enable whonix dev/testing repos and report back and even then, we still get the reports when the next stable is out.

  • APT now implements phased updates . Phasing is used in Ubuntu to slow down and control the roll out of updates in the -updates pocket, but has previously only been available to desktop users using update-manager.

Phased updates is an interesting one as it supports gradually rolling out a new update to a subset of users, in case it has regressions so everybody isn’t affected at once while giving it some testing.

This is great news!

But I don’t know how to use this yet. Likely requires reprepro support.
