No, that is not the problem here. The problem is all users of green
having only the green suite mentioned in their sources.list, since no
-updates or -security suites exist for a rolling-release distribution
(and that's what PureOS is currently designed for).
So actually, all users of green would have to update their
sources.list to still have security updates, which I really don't
think is possible if they manually do that - we can't reach every user
of green with a blogpost.
(that's why we either need to find a way to do that automatically, or
just keep green rolling and create a new stable suite that existing
users can opt-in instead)
