Hi Ian,

I came in contact with SME back in about 2008 and this year, after a long absence, I have SME Server 8 installed to help me manage my local home network. But CentOs 5.8's old versions of almost everything is causing more hassle than i would want.

I would like to install SME Server 9 and through doing so try, for the first time ever, to assist with feedback during the development of an alpha.

Short of doing the install and posting bugs on bugs.contribs.org do you have any tips or tactics (sources to read) which could help me on the right path to being a useful source of feedback?

Regards,
David
