I am running Debian Wheezy, which is the current stable Debian distribution. In my
/etc/apt/sources.list, I have something like the following:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian wheezy main deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-security/ wheezy/updates main
When I run
apt-get update and
apt-get upgrade, I would expect that only security updates will be installed. However, I see that there are other packages which want to be updated, such as:
dpkg (1.16.10) -> (1.16.12)
could somebody please explain what is the debian update policy? Why were these packaged updated? I was under the impression, that only security issues are being fixed in stable distribution.
