I think that we should ship alpha1 in the next few weeks to demonstrate that we have a deliverable.

This will ensure that there is no FUD spread, like "Unreal 3.4 is going to be like Unreal 3.3." We will have shipped a deliverable, proving that it's not vapourware.

Core changes for alpha1 are done. We now begin a stabilization cycle.

Agreed.
From a technical POV I it's too early and not terribly useful (maybe a little), but from a PR POV it certainly is a good idea :)

With all the warnings and disclaimers attached that belong to an alpha release, of course (IOTW: 'your server will likely crash').

Just let me know when you're ready for it so we can write an announcement.
And, indeed, it would be nice to avoid the really obvious errors where the IRCd would crash within a few seconds after boot or something ;)

All the blockers for alpha1 are resolved at this point.

I think we can ship something over the weekend.
