Alpha and beta releases are fine for major releases. Beta releases for a minor release can be made if there are some changes or fixes that must be

Any comments?


It's a sad state of affairs that the wailing and gnashing of teeth only ever happens after a third-dot final release and few people bother with the betas. In the light of the effort needed to produce a Zope beta I support the decision.

I personally would still continue doing betas for things like CMF, but then again the work needed to put together a release is a lot less. And I still live under the illusion that those betas see a modicum of testing ;)
