I feel that we should freeze the libs and move into app development
*right_now* (mostly what coolo said on core-devel yesterday). For really
important stuff that surfaces in the process of stabilising and getting apps
in place, it should be possible to make exceptions to the freeze.
Whether we want to call it alpha or beta, I don't know. It's not
feature-complete from an application's point of view, but then, the release
schedule is not clear on what's meant by a 'beta'. What date do others have
in mind for a "total feature freeze, only bugfixes from now on"?
I do also feel that I'm fairly inexperienced with this kind of stuff, never
followed a big release like this really closely. That said, I'm quite
confident in the state of what's there right now.
