Subject Beta Announcement and encouraging user testing
Date Mon, 07 Aug 2006 21:37:47 GMT
Dear Development Community,

I find myself very concerned about the small amount of feedback we have 
gotten so far from the user community on 10.2. We have heard no feedback 
really positive or negative on the major new features, like 
grant/revoke, SUR,  online-backup and JDBC 4.0.   We've gotten a few 
bites for existing application testing for the 
RegressionSearchAndDestroy contest [1]  and we have gotten a couple of 
regressions filed from users trying 10.2, but after a year of 
development  I just don't have the feeling users are really out there 
pounding on it like they need to with such an incredibly concentrated 
beta period.

How can we make a big splash with the Beta Announcement and follow-up to 
get users pounding on 10.2 to make sure this is a quality release? 
I am interested in ideas from the community.
