What's an arch based distro that updates slower? The frequent updates of the main repository are a bit too fast for my taste. I like the rolling release system so want to keep that.

    Doesn't lts only apply to the kernel and modules? What about the user space packages (gnome, vim, gcc, gawk, grep, libc etc..) – sashang Jun 17 '15 at 8:58

    So you don't want a rolling release then? The definition of rolling release is to update each component as soon as it's available. – Gilles Jun 17 '15 at 14:44

If it's a rolling-release that's not so bleeding-edge you're after, take a good look at Tumbleweed from OpenSuse.

Arch is generally intended to be a pure upstream system, and as such is pretty bleeding-edge. Antegros and Manjaro are Arch based systems that can lag a week or so behind, but that's probably not what you're after.
