Yes, but we want the feedback early so we can fix bugs before people use
the software in production systems.

If you want feedback on SUR then I strongly encourage you to post a
10.2alpha snapshot that contains SUR, write an intro/overview that
explains what functionality you want people to test, point them to the
SUR documentation, and spread the word through the derby-user list and
any other avenues you want. We all probably need to be more pro-active
about encouraging feedback on new features, I'm not sure pushing for a
release is the correct way to do that.
