whoa, i didn't mean for this thread to get quite this heated,
sorry about that. i just felt like making two points.
first, if RH wants to pre-announce beta dates, that's cool.
if they want to do the "when it's ready" thing, that's also
cool. it's just silly and inconsistent to flip-flop between
and second, i don't think the idea of "when it's ready" is as
critical for betas as for official releases, for obvious reasons.
no one expects perfection if it's a beta. it's just that, for
those of us who have been running the beta since we could get
our greedy little mitts on it, it would be nice to get a newer
version and start testing all over again. after all, that's
why we volunteer to be beta testers.
