Don't take me wrong: I'm not saying either of these. Your message left me with
the impression that you understand the download/installation process well enough
to give it a try, and I was just saying that if it is not the case, we'll
happily answer your questions here.

The page about pretest is only temporary and targeted at a specific audience. As
far as I am concerned, your feedback about the actual distro is much more
interesting than about this temporary page.

Your feedback about the distro is always welcome, as are your questions about
the pretest process if you have any.
