Wheezy is Debian 7. 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, ..., 7.9, 7.10, and 7.11 are all
"point releases" of wheezy. They are wheezy with security and
other important bug fixes applied.
Both 7.9 and 7.11 are obsolete, well beyond end of life, and even beyond
Long Term Support (LTS). They are unsupported. There is no reason you
should be seeking them out.
That said, if you ARE running a 7.9 wheezy system for any reason, there
is NO justifiable reason for you to KEEP it in that state. You can
still obtain the patched packages to bring it up to 7.11. You don't
even have to modify your sources.list. You just update & upgrade it
There is even LESS reason for you to be CREATING another wheezy 7.9 system
at this point. What possible justification could you have for that?
"To keep the other one from getting lonely"? If you require wheezy
for some reason (which is conceivable), then you should simply install
the most patched-up version of wheezy.
