OK, don't mind if I do. I tend to agree, although I tip my hat to those
whose "day jobs" (and spouses/significant others) allow them to tinker
to their heart's content with a "bleeding edge" release. I don't mind
futzing with the bleeding edge of this or that individual piece of
software. But I rely on my Ubuntu-guided laptop to make a living. I
can't be on the road in some "save the company some extra money" motel
with a dial-up connection and have my op system fly south on me. And
don't the developers have a separate list for those helping them put
Edgy, or whatever, through its paces? Seems to me that once one puts the
development version of anything to work, it's time to subscribe to the
developers list as well.

I suspect that this list is the list of first recourse because, well,
folks already are subscribed! But those working on the bleeding edge --
and in the best position to help -- are more likely to monitor that
list, I would think...
