Actually, I think it's worth having this mentioned on this list. The
problem (F18 alpha will eat your data) is fairly well known on the
devel list, but the fact that Jakub thought this needed a post
suggests that people on the users list aren't aware of it at a time at
which they might start trying Alpha. So starting a 'here be dragons'
thread is not completely unwarranted. (Also a bit extreme to say we
absolutely cannot mention F18 here when the assumption on devel is
often that you are a maintainer or developer, this is the users list
users mailing list
