Yes, the problems you signalled are also because we have no real testing 
procedures or instructions yet. Is it unreasonable to ask for ALFS 
profiles with each pre release? It would be great to provide those, 
together with clear instructions on each release; it would simplify the 
test process and hopefully attract more testers.

And with 5.1 out, we should have more free time to work out these 
issues. That's a job for the testing team, though :-)
