I perfectly agree with all the concerns inside your post, Jeff.
And the same I think all the other subscribers.
Probably we bring together many (Red) Hats on our head: developers,
testers and also final users hats, and it is not so simple to strictly
separate them in our spirit...
As user I think that new versions of a product, while in testing/developing,
should primarily crash or misbehave when new/exciting/revolutionary
things are involved not
the basics and fundamentals.
So, for example one doesn't expect that only navigating through a file
system causes so many and persistent problems. The same is for other
aspects we are seeing in gnome in rawhide these days.
Probably it could also help if someone could show (I don't know if it
is so simple or posted yet) any links/wikys that explain the
advantages the new core (2.14) will give versus the old one (2.12) and
how the core functionalities are involved, due to these improvements.
Only my 0.2 euros and thanks for all your work.
