Call me cynical but if people doesn't read documentation, fine with
me. But you can tell me what is hard to understand at

   This distribution is currently in ``testing'' phase. That means
   that things might break if you run it. Anyone running woody is
   expected to be informed about any volatilities, usually by
   following developer-oriented mailing lists;

But that is an old discussion.

If the existence of unstable should be a secret on #debian I
understand why others developers doesn't come there anymore.I only
shows up on devel once in a while and mostly to see the topic or hear
why unstable broke but that is primaly because I don't really wants to
waste time on irc.
