Yes, I've been keeping pair with the discussion, and have read the guidelines. Still we can expect that some applications will not obey what the WM states.

I got that link from the meetings minutes, and am already subscribed to it. You can see me there _waiving_!

Please to my original email, where I mention that.
Currently, during development there isnt a Release Note, but only Milestone and Technical Overview. As I said before, this information is dispersed (ok in this case it even makes sense since they are targeted to different users), but I (and many more testers) feel that it still lacks some of the reasoning. Besides it also lacks the changes done upstream and ported to ubuntu land. I already discuss this with Dan on the List, and with Alexander on IRC. I got the feeling that Canonical devs feel that upstream changes should be ported and let the community find by them selves what and how it changed.
Please understand that I have no intention of flaming anyone here, just wishing to improve how things are done for the benefit of the community and testers.

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...
