I just thought I'd include the point, for completeness :)

Yeah, you'd think so. But obviously from past mails, people expect the
beta software to work perfectly. I thought adding a statement in this
directory explicitly saying this would save some headaches for Dale.

Yep, I have to agree with you on this one. We're still missing the list
of known bugs, though. This way, we don't get people mailing to the list
saying they found a bug that has already been found. Not only that, but we
also become aware of problems with Emerald versions that we were thinking of
upgrading to, or already have installed.

Does anybody think that making a list of what is expected a waste of
time?? Maybey we should just take things one at a time and sort it out on
the maillist.
