Hi all,

I meant to send this round a while ago but evidently forgot.
RT 4.2 has been in Debian experimental for a few weeks and I'm looking
for testers and general feedback, especially if you are familar with
RT in Debian already. Please bear in mind that experimental means
experimental, and although I think the packages are close to being
ready, they still might eat your data.

I'm especially interested in hearing how upgrades (in test environments)
from your RT 4.0 installs work out.

I'm also interested in hearing about people who are using RT
from wheezy-backports; in particular whether you would be interested in
RT 4.2 appearing there soon, or whether you would want to stick with
RT 4.0. This might affect how we manage the release of RT4.2 into the
world. The most likely scenario is that RT 4.2 is released as
request-tracker4, as per the experimental packages, which somewhat
cuts of the maintenance path for RT 4.0 in wheezy-backports - but
we could look at providing a separate semi-official repository for people
who want to RT 4.0.

If you send feedback to the list, please copy me in at dom at debian.org.
