Early tickets

@ironprogrammer raised a question if early tickets should have a deadline, and this led to a lively discussion.

Previously, this topic was discussed in the middle of January in #6-2-release-leads channel.

Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. will be good.

@davidbaumwald doesn’t want to sign on the ‘deadline’ and presumed that what to commit depends on the best judgement of contributors (firstly committers).

As a resume: no one raised a hand for an exact ‘deadline’, but the early tickets need attention and better to be in Trunktrunk A directory in Subversion containing the latest development code in preparation for the next major release cycle. If you are running "trunk", then you are on the latest revision. to Beta 1 and get as much testing as possible.
