Can you check when you get a chance? I know that the DL numbers for the first alphas were very low, but I'm wondering about Alpha 3, 4 and 5.
The main value of the alphas is that our Windows users aren't going to do any testing which requires source code compile. But if they're not doing any testing anyway, then there's no real point.
There's PR value in doing the alphas, but not enough to justify the effort involved.
If we're not going to do regular alphas, I would push to do one special alpha release which includes all of the locking code improvements and similar features added to date.
