OK. I will. I quote from your original email:
"If we had Alpha releases, say 'lenny-alpha1' release at a point where
there's no major block/crash-like problems being caused then people
could download that milestone release. 'lenny-alpha1' could then not
update until 'lenny-alpha2' is released"
Sounds like you want to have pre-stable release to me. It's called a
I still see no reason to have separate releases or stages within
testing. I think it is more trouble then it is worth for the developers.
You're gonna get tired of me telling you that you don't read.
What I also put was this...
"These milestones don't have to affect the way it is developed, just
someone keeping an eagle eye out for a weekly generated ISO that -kinda
works OK- that can be relabelled Alpha 1, 2, 3 etc... and with a tweaked
apt so it doesn't update until the next Alpha."
I'm _NOT_ on about a pre-stable release like a RC, you might have your
first alpha only a couple of months after work on lenny as "testing"
I think you're just closed minded - sorry
