How does one try to add a comment to help clarify the quality of an answer if one's reputation points aren't enough?
On being sent a course outline that suggested I download Python 3.6, I attempted this on a Debian stable build. I've got a few hours until the course starts.
Someone blithely suggested we download all the experimental and unstable features, and it had 13 upvotes at the time of reading, which seemed sufficiently high, and there were no adverse comments to the answer.
Accordingly, being a little bit short of Debian knowledge, but hoping for the best with a stable build, went ahead and switched Debian over to an experimental build.
After an hour of downloading, it seems that what I've done has suddenly changed the profile of my Debian build quite dramatically.
With a sinking gut feel, I'm now reading that changing the profile back is probably going to be a mission.
In order to save someone else from their ignorance, it would be nice to be able to add something to that particular answer, but I can't because I lack reputational points.
