Hi Tom, Charles,

Hi :)
There is already a wiki-page!  The graphic clearly backs up what i have been saying.  Presumably 
the graphic is wrong but wont get replaced and the new page will just contradict the graphic.  The 
public announcement contradicts the graphic.  So, which is true?

IF the .0, .1 and .2 release are the most stable releases then we should
1.  delete the graphic and
2.  stop having 2 branches because any work done on the older branch is clearly a complete waste of 


IF, as with Debian, the .0, .1 and .2 are for early adopters, experts and people who don't really 
mind running into occasional problems and perhaps even happy to report and maybe even fix things 
then i think we should
1.  Put the older branch on the main downloads page
2.  In public announcements show-off the fact that new features have been added (and improved 
compatibility)  but just say nothing about stability because stability is irrelevant for those 
early releases.

What is the problem?  Why can't we be honest?  Why even mention anything about stability in public 
Regards from
Tom :)



I'll make sure I mention


Tom: please point me to the wiki page. I will update the page.

Also Tom, remember that for most, if not all enterprises, that moving to a different version is a big deal and the IT departments are expected to do their homework. Having two branches allows enterprises a larger choice of our product which is a good thing. Its a matter of choice. Let's get a fact filled wiki page up and then, if there is still a discussion that is warranted, it can be proposed to the membership or as a conference discussion item. If all the facts are on a page, then we can all come to the discussion table with common facts.

You are probably just getting just as frustrated as all others on this thread and it is really not going anywhere.
