Also, is there a clear path for packages to go from /beta to /current? It seems like we're approaching a situation where many commonly-used packages are in /beta, which makes it more of an issue that some of the /beta packages aren't really tested.
As I've said before, someone just needs to let me know. I'm not clairvoyant - I don't know which packages you use and have had good success with. I also don't currently have an SGI system running to test myself (all machines are currently in storage or just not hooked up).
By the same token, if packages are totally broken, let me know that as well so they can be moved to the obsolete directory. Once again, I don't have mystical powers of deduction to determine which packages borked your system. You need to tell me.
