 Alongside with the instructions on [[wiki:​repositories:​debian|the main Debian repository page]], we provide a repository archive for archived X2Go Debian packages for deprecated Debian GNU/Linux releases. These are provided in the state they were in after their last successful build. This repository is not updated at all, other than when a new Debian GNU/Linux release version is deprecated. Alongside with the instructions on [[wiki:​repositories:​debian|the main Debian repository page]], we provide a repository archive for archived X2Go Debian packages for deprecated Debian GNU/Linux releases.

Our pseudo-codename setup is not guaranteed to be in sync with Debian's releases, so using the ''​stable'' ​codename might mean that you will actually get packages for what Debian calls ''​oldstable'' after a new Debian distro release for a considerable amount of time.</​note>​

 +<note warning>​Switching between components usually requires uninstalling all X2Go packages first! The only upgrade path that is considered somewhat safe is main (release packages) to heuler (nightly packages), but there are no guarantees regarding the stability or usefulness of nightly packages.</​note>​
