Consider the mess that -stable is in right now with the PAE patches

ACPI is too critical for us to track -stable with until it has
stabilized in -stable (or -current). I am not at all reassured
by the current state of affairs in -stable.
So I would say we should wait at least a few months, though I am not
against trying to identify why the original poster's particular system
doesn't boot and trying to fix that one thing.
Well, as I suggested earlier on, we could create a section on
the web site where we track patchsets like ACPI and PAE.
Atleast that way, various people can test out their patches and
comment on their overall experience with it. Depending on how
stable the patch has been after some time, we would then commit
it into DragonFly... what do you think of this idea?
