Sorry. This was intended for the mailing list (not only Stephen).

Thanks for your email.

As you point out there are still bugs on the blocking list for beta 2. These must either be fixed, or removed from the list (by the release team).

So why do we ask people to test while we still have blockers?
Delaying the testing effort is most likely not going to make the testing easier, it will only delay the detection of important issues.

Ah, sorry I just noticed the other mail.

I'd still like to know about this.
