[INFO] ArcoLinux stops using release numbers in /etc/lsb-release

Post by erikdubois »

The file /etc/lsb-release used to contain a number reference to the iso.
Like 20.7.5

We have to convince people that this is just a number.
It does not mean you are up-to-date.

Updating is done with update, skel and upall in a terminal.

With the new update of lsb-release of 10/07/2020 we decided to break with tradition.

ArcoLinux is now rolling. Example in the sysinfo script.
