When to dist-upgrade vs when to reinstall?
#5
@dcarvil and @mouffa Thank you for your answers. To answer mouffa's question, the Mobian repos are always the same so far; no versioning or splits have occurred.

With this in mind, I figure the answer to the question is: While more installation options (such as base filesystem settings, partitioning, and encryption) will be added to the installation image, most new functionality will be available via the repositories. Thanks again to both of you.
