Re: is Debian Alpha ready?

I think you'd be fine.  There are lots of issues still being worked on, but
what we have works pretty well.  As an example, last night I rebooted my UDB
after over 66 days of uptime, and only then because I was testing a new build
of the e2fs tools.  I don't use the system very heavily, but it gets wiggled
enough that I think this represents a fair degree of stability.

Hey, no problem.  We're pleased at this point to have additional users try
things out, particularly ones who are knowledgeable and not afraid to deal
with some "speed bumps" along the way.  We'll do what we can to help.
