While we discuss those issues in a separate thread, I would suggest that if alpha testing does not reveal any issues related to stability or maintenance of the server, then we learn nothing about the server changes, but that does not reduce the usefulness of the alpha testing in providing feedback about *other* changes.
For the alpha2 we're discussing, we more or less know that there are
bugs in FSFS ... after all, a number of them have been fixed in the 5
weeks since the release tarball was created.
But that's perfectly fine, IMO; the reason why we decided to produce
alpha and beta packages was to increase the chances of getting feedback
before the code and features are more or less cast in concrete with RC1.
And I at least fully expect to find obvious bugs in alpha and beta
releases; even bugs that would be considered release blockers in other
