Is this a beta testers report??? If so is this the place to send these
reports to Debian? I'm a bit confused here since most people subscribed to
this list have been using bo, or parts of it for some time now.
I've been on this list since around the first of the year and haven't seen
this kind of "Report" before. Was this an accident or is this the list to
make such reports? Honest question, not a flame. Because it seems an
unlikely place to inform people of things we've been talking about in here
for months now.
If this be the place for reports of this nature let me know so I know where
to submit mine.
