Project Proposal made to skip Alpha Releases in future

There's been a proposal submitted to branch from rawhide to beta release from Fedora 27 onwards. The logic is sound enough as rawhide will hopefully also become more robust as a result.

What are your thoughts? I rarely tried the alpha releases anyway and have usually tested public beta and release candidates more historically. Occasionally I've dabbled with rawhide but if the proposal is accepted it will develop into a more tempting proposition as a daily usage option in due course.

Re: Project Proposal made to skip Alpha Releases in future

For me, at least last three alphas have been daily use quality.

But then, I also follow both test and devel and any issues that arise are quicky sloved from my perspective.

Further more, I predominantly use only Fedora repo (and rarely rpmfusion) and almost entirely open source software. So, mine is a simpler use case.
