Bazaar's development process has always made be comfortable using
snapshots. The extensive regression tests led to it being fairly
solid. The most recent releases of both Debian and Ubuntu shipped
snapshots of 2.6dev. Though there are obviously people that feel
uncomfortable about using software labeled beta (especially when the
future of the project doesn't look quite so bright). Maybe it's time
to tag a 2.6 release?

What would it take for us to get there? Is this something people would
be interested in seeing?

There see to be four bugs currently targeted at 2.6~b3. One of them
has a merge proposal with an "approve" vote that hasn't been landed.
