3. It is very important to catch backward compatibility problems

""""Consumers of  Zope have a right to backward compatibility"""

Consumers of Zope also have the duty to test beta releases! A lot of people
are waiting the final release before trying it for a variety of reasons. So why
do be do beta releases? :-)

Exactly. If people want more frequent releases, which they do, and they want higher quality, then they need to help by testing. We need to make this clear. This is an important way that people can contribute.
