I don't think you can call it a rolling release unless you only count
Linus branch and discount others like Linux next tree and even that is a
stretch since the "rc" releases are essentially development snapshots
that incrementally move towards less changes and more stability exactly
like the alpha and beta releases and release candidates in a Linux
distribution .
