While I understand that you're excited about new features and bug fixes you should hold your horses and wait until upstream deems their software ready (by issuing a release).

Read the open letter here: do-not-ship.it/

@devrtz so true. (as a newbie) I wonder if there are nightly builds people (not maintainers) can opt into to get these 'new features' and WIPs?
Or would that be too much of a hassle for developers of core components?


As a user if you really want to, you can certainly test things out (and feedback on MRs is welcome!)

But as far as distributions are concerned: Please WIP patches to your users without consent.

@devrtz @dean A user can do whatever he wants with his device.
And sure there can be leading/bleeding/breaking edge distros.

But distros should warn their users what they are in for when selecting their distro. So that users make an informed choice.

A distro shipping unfinished WIP work in core packages without warning users is reckless to say the least.
