Subject Re: New Goal -- Milestone Release
Date Sun, 23 Nov 2003 00:10:35 GMT
Personally, I like this idea for a couple reasons. First, it avoids the 
issues and politiks associated with doing an unofficial release while 
the project is still in the incubator. Secondly, it provides a good 
opportunity to work out the mechanics of doing a release, which would 
hopefully smooth out the process when an official release is made.

I'm unsure whether this would have any impact on the number of people 
that will try out the the code - I think most anyone who has an interest 
will be capable of building the project.
