Speaking for myself there are 2 reasons.

1 PyQt takes forever to compile on my old puter (8+ hours)
2 I'm a newbie programmer comming from a web/PHP background.

Is there a way to run a stable release alongside a beta version? I'm learning 
so I don't want to stress my mind figuring out if a problem is my fault or a 
bug. :-)

How would switching off CVS help? I would think the faster downloads from CVS 
would help?

I'd be happy to submit bug reports if you don't mind any bugs that are my 
fault. :-)


Thanks Phill for working on PyQt. I got my first program 
(http://pyfretcalc.sourceforge.net) working great using it :-) and while I'm 
at it... Thanks to Boudewijn for writing such a great book.
