That's mostly cause we are working on outdated thoughts and dreams of 
the project which the project and the community has outgrown long time 
ago by shipping an "Default" in any shape or form .( From my perspective )

So I can get a bit on the page what is the feedback you general expect 
surrounding alpha and from whom?
( Rawhide users/reporters should know it's broken in the first place and 
provide feedback )

Shipping "Alpha/Beta" is only a marketing gimmick anyway and it outdated 
the day we finally ship that stuff..

If I'm not mistaken the the feature process entirely optional so tying 
the "testing" of features into our release cycle so closely does not 
make any sense to be perhaps someone is willing to refresh my memory by 
explaining it to me why we did that in the first place?

It is time for us ( QA  ) to get more in times with the evolution of the 
project and start considering SIG specific criteria or better yet a 
solution more consistent with and built upon other things we have been 
working like critical-path.
