[PyKDE] I Wish To Register A Complaint

I'm not happy with the problems that have been found with v3.2.
Admittedly there were some large changes under the covers (for threading
for example) which wouldn't have attracted attention unless they broke,
but I view v3.2.n (where n > 0) as a failure of the testing process.

So, why don't users want to test pre-releases and release candidates?

I'd like some feedback on this problem - what would motivate you as a
user to test a beta version with your application?

I don't want to adopt the Microsoft approach and release beta versions
pretending they are working perfectly.

Over the next few weeks I intend to switch off CVS access and provide
daily snapshot source packages instead. Maybe if my initial reaction to
bug reports was then "have you tried the latest snapshot"?
