Yes, I know, it is a _hypothetical_question_. You do not really expect
an answer.

However it was my thought exactly. Nobody? I like to think that those
that were responsible for patches, have tested their modifications.

I did.

On the other hand, those that will find problems, the people building
packages, will only do that on "official" releases.

I am almost sure of that :-)

Unless you like creating test releases, releasing only one before you
push an "official" one, would be more efficient, I imagine.

Yes, you would run the chance that you would have to mend an official
release several times ... but is that bad?

Just a thought.
