I would prefer 2. That same policy can also be applied to other
non-stable software. For things that are broken in the current stable
version, backport the patch from the non-stable version.
Like the book says, "Your distro, your rules". So users can install any
version they want, the book follows the official version.
This should be another thread: I would like to suggest having individual
patches with explainations on what each patch deos instead of a mega patch.
