Would not this reference more of your personal preference than
what would benefit the user the most?
What the general concept would be, is that once users (of the
previous release) notices that the CVS version has been tagged
with release candidate status, a larger part of the user base might
be attracted to upgrade to the CVS version.
And, yea, we are at version .1x, but the codebase is getting larger
every day, and fixing every bug in every release without more testing
by the users of MythTV, will get harder as time goes by. My point
beeing that eventually it will be needed, whether or not to
start now is not up to me...but the users, really...
