My point was simply that such behavior can happen in even a minor update
and we should be tackling that directly in the update policy instead of
distracting ourselves with discussions about pre-releases. Whether
something is called by upstream as alpha or beta is less important than
what changes the updates bring along. The problem in thunderbird could
have been solved simply disabling a couple of simple settings in the
initial update. *That* is where the focus should be.
