That's what I've been trying to complain about.

If all you do is call a "short" freeze before a release, nobody ever has time 
to look around and try things that might uncover bugs.

A serious testing phase is also a good opportunity to test and improve the 
documentation.  Documentation gets tested if people use it when they try 
something new.  I'm willing to fis or clarify documentation without setting 
the testing timer back to zero.  We can get several people to review the 

It's probably worth several of us making a pass over all the documentation.  
That includes most of devel/ as well as what gets installed.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
