Hi Ben,

I didn't vote for 1.9.0-alpha2 because I believe that current trunk
should not be released even with alpha label. So effectively my vote
was -0.5, but I decided didn't express my vote if will be 3+3 people
interesting in driving 1.9.0-alpha2. But reality shown that developers
are not interested so much in 1.9.0-alpha2. Changing release polices
to overcome developers opinion is not good for community IMHO, but
this is topic for another thread.

The only big feature is fsfs7, but the past shows that users even
didn't try Subversion on client before final release, so expecting
that some sysadmin will try alpha on server doesn't make sense.

Even more I believe that fsfs7 stuff and log addressing stuff should
be reverted from trunk and such significant fsfs format changes should
be implemented in fsx to give users a choice: use stable and proven
format or something really new and never tested.
