what's the oldest "this information is correct as of" you've ever found while browsing the debian wiki

i just found "working configuration as of September 7, 2007" on an article that references linux kernel 2.6.21

i used to use debian stable, until one day i found out that gimp 2.10 had been out for several months (over half a year iirc) while stable was still on 2.8, at which point i switched to testing

i switched to arch in 2017 or so after reading that a long-standing issue with my laptop had been fixed in the latest linux kernel, and then realising that said linux kernel version wouldn't be arriving on debian for like a year, and that arch had it mere days after release

this is what it feels like to come across a debian wiki page saying something like "TODO: as of debian etch this no longer works, needs an update"

@lynnesbian I feel this. I'm using debian stretch at work. It's so annoying to know about bug fixes that are not available yet because it was fixed "only" 3 years ago... πŸ˜’
