Bernd, I (with my DD or upstream developer hat on) understand your sentiment.
But I also (with my consultant or end-user hat on) find it impossible to
If I was running a large scale IT environment (say 1000+ users) then I would
assign an increasing portion of the help-desk people to run testing as the
release became closer and I would allow some of the user-base to run testing
when the release was really close. Then after the release I would slowly
increase the number of people running the new release so that bugs could be
identified and fixed. If a bug hit the 1% of the user-base who were most
adventurous and demanding of new versions then it wouldn't be so bad.
But however I'm not running a large IT environment and I don't have the
resources for such things. Sometimes I do the upgrade after the release and
just have to deal with some bugs.
That said my results from upgrading to Lenny have been a lot more positive
than Michelle reported.
