There is SOME QA ... just not all the QA that they get as part of the
main release.

They are not right off the build and into the server ... we do our
functionality test suite prior to pushing CR (and other tests, and look
for repo closure).  They are fairly well vetted.

We are trying to serve two masters here ... fast release and fully
tested release.  CR is the middle of that and a compromise that should
work and not break things AND still allow us to do the testing we want
for the main release too.

So, you should expect more issues from CR than the main tree ... but the
risk should be minimal for any kind of major breakage.

For what its worth, I use CR on the machines I manage in production.
