My first thought is...who in the community is standing up and taking
the responsibility as the front line testers of preupgrade during the
pre-release process?  I admit I don't test or make us of it (and thus
I don't feel I'm qualified to comment on how well it functions nor do
I tell people to use it because I do not use it myself)...as I prefer
fresh installs so that I can experience the default configuration
which can change significantly from release to release.  Do we need
some affirmative me-too tabulation on the install scenarios to get an
idea of how much testing each method is getting? If preupgrade is
seeing only 1% of the DVD installer testing would it help to publicly
expose that as encouragement for more people to test preupgrade?
