     3On the the 7th of August, Axel Dörfler started a discussion on the things to do in the thread [http://www.freelists.org/archives/haiku-development/08-2008/msg00079.html Haiku R1/alpha decisions]. Here's a summary of that discussion. Axel called for:
     4
     5{{{
     6The aim of this thread should be to compile a complete list of things
     7we want to have in the first alpha release, be it feature or software.
     8}}}
     9
     10 * This page lists concrete proposals that came out of that discussion.
     11 * Every item should have an adopter. This person is responsible for the implementation (which of course does not mean he/she has to do it themselves).
     12 * This page is open for editing for all users that are in the '''developers''' group. Feel free to register as adopter, tweak your adopted proposals or add new ones.
     13 * This page will be marked read-only on Sunday at 13:00 GMT.

     15== General Proposals ==
     16
     17The proposals are general when they apply to procedures, requirements that cannot be quantified or qualified, or tendencies that are not covered by sections deeper down.
     18
     19=== Prop # 1: All known bugs that cause data corruption need to be resolved before the release ===
     20
     21Adopted by: ''no one''
     22
     23* [http://www.freelists.org/archives/haiku-development/08-2008/msg00080.html BGA]:
     24{{{
     25Speaking in general terms, the important thing, even for an alpha, is
     26that we have no know bug that can cause data corruption. As long as
     27we reach a point where we are reasonably certain that this is the case,
     28everything else can be attributed to it being an alpha. :)
