So my metrics for the length of the beta period is the length of time a *testable* beta is available.
Because of the scrample to get stuff in before feature freeze beta1 is usually the most broken release in the entire development cycle, it would prolly be a good idea to address this problem. For example by having an extra week or so between feature freeze and beta1 release.
- Lack of test environment. I need a stable and dependable computer for
daily use. I don't have the reasources to be an identical new computer just for testing.
My model is keeping a partition of 5-8 gigs on both my workstation and laptop for testing purposes. I then install the development releases in dual boot with my stable installation. This way I can test on my own real hardware without having to run beta/factory full time.
