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 time.
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 announcements!?!!

Hoping this will be the last time we discuss this on the marketing
and so that we can move on to actual marketing topics and work....
To be fair to Tom, this is also a recurring topic from others. So, when
I have time, if we can all agree to this, I will put together a wiki
page for reference. We can then point to the appropriate wiki page for
How does this sound?
It does sound good, just make sure you digest the two links on the
release plan and release criteria I pointed out..
This does not mean that I am suggesting that we not discuss it anymore,
just that we all get the facts down on paper so that we can have a more
productive discussion on this topic should it come up again.
