I suspect the right solution is somewhere in the middle. The old site
is really starting to hurt us, and it would be great if we could move
sooner rather than later. But I agree with John that we don't want to
slow down development too much, and we also don't want real users to
get frustrated by serious bugs. Could we keep pushing (push-then-fix)
for now, and start increasing the testing / staging phase by a day at
a time as we take on more users?

It might also be useful to have an alpha.p2pu.org where those with
interest and time, could always access the latest snapshot of
development progress, and help test.
