Thanks for the information.

The freeze period for the next stable Debian release will be on the
5th of November 2014.
The next Tryton version (3.4) will be out 15 days prior to that.

We would like to get the latest Tryton version into the next Debian
release, but that won't work if the GNU Health version is still
depending on the previous Tryton version.

Do you think that it would be possible (for GNU Health 2.8 at least,
but probably for other future versions as well) to align the release
of GNU Health closer to the Tryton release dates?
I understand you develop newer versions of GNU Health on the
development versions of Tryton (3.3 etc.), I assume you would thus
still be able to develop the next GNU Health version while Tryton's
new version is maturing, and release the new GNU Health version a
couple of days/weeks after Tryton?

Another question from Mathias (Debian's Tryton Maintainer) is what the
support timelines for GNU Health are.
Apparently Tryton supports a release for up to 2 years.
On the wiki [3] I see that "Since version 2.2.1, "patchsets" will be
released for the GNU Health stable versions (those with even minor
number, ej 1.2.3 )".
"stable versionS" is mentioned in plural form, but it is not mentioned
for how long they are supported. It would be great if you could
provide some clarification on this topic as well.
