If that's the case that's cool.

I think what is critical and what is not being done is being honest  
about over stability of the product and of the API. Provided the API  
is know to be stable and the stability of the tool itself is good  
then a beta is fine to release. We're labeling stuff like Archiva as  
beta and it's not even close which I can attest to with having to try  
and keep it up on central for the last month. This stuff cannot go  
out as beta in alpha form. People will consume releases, we just have  
to be honest about it.

I think the EAP stuff is fine and that could be considered the alphas  
but I think people like the markers. So EAPs can go out weekly, I  
think that's a good thing but even folks like Intellij releases  
betas. I think they just do the EAP thing for marketing so that it  
doesn't actually say alpha when it really is.

I think so. I mean it will be April before those 163 issues get
