Where, exactly, is the glorification? Why, as the primary maintainer of
svn.collab.net, would I wish to run an alpha defined so on that box? Why
would anyone, anywhere take such a release seriously? Sorry if I'm missing
something obvious, but if these are the criteria for an alpha, then we could
be rolling alphas from day one of a release cycle, couldn't we?
