Thanks for your answer, Olivier.
From what I have read between the lines in the FAQ, Tanglu will be
released-based. Meaning every half a year, there will be a new version
to which one could dist-upgrade.
The fact that it points to releasename specific repos, also underlines
this theory. Concerning upgrade vs dist-upgrade I am not yet sure what's
the best way to upgrade within one Release. The graphical update
application seems to do a regular apt-get upgrade.
