I thought so too earlier on but from interacting with users, it isn't
quite true. Even for alpha or beta releases, a lot of people (and press)
like screenshots. Screenshots and screencasts attract people throughout
development cycle. Any major change in the interface like Plymouth in the
earlier release and volume control in this release is definitely worth
Also, instead of trying to put together all of the release notes at the
end of the cycle, I am trying to do it more incrementally and do a better
job each milestone. Except for a few notes about what a alpha or beta
release means, it is worth taking it as seriously as the general release.
I am now more or less done with the Fedora 11 Alpha release notes and
pretty happy with it.
You did a good job of bubbling up important topics for the release
notes, thanks for your work there!
