At Sourcefabric we are testing Opus streams from the Airtime broadcast
automation system via Icecast 2.4-beta. Other developers in our
community are testing video streaming with Theora. We would like to make
it easier for our users to try this Icecast beta themselves.

Would it be premature for us to release a backported .deb package of
icecast 2.4-beta for Debian and Ubuntu, or would the additional feedback
from our community be welcome?

We would of course make it very clear that this package would not yet be
recommended for production use, and as such it would not go into our
official repository until the code was declared stable by the Icecast team.

A possible alternative would be for us to provide an Icecast 2.4-beta
demo server that our community could use for test streams.
