alpha tarball or cvs?

Hi folks,

I'm setting up a new box and I'm planning on switching from 2.1.13 to one 
of the 2.2.0 alphas, either out of cvs or from the tarball on the ftp 
site. I imagine since the tarball on the FTP site was created (according 
to the ftp site) in march, the cvs is gonna have a number less bugs. Would 
anyone suggest using the alpha tarball over CVS, and why? Also, what CVS 
magic would I need to work to get a copy of the latest CVS 2.2.x?

There's another thing. I'm using the patch for lmtpd from:

which allows for usernames of user at domain.tld. It's been working
wonderfully for me for almost a year now. I know that the spool directory
structure has changed to accomodate virtual hosts. What should I worry
about when converting my mailboxes to the new alpha spool structure? Also, 
what would one suggest in doing the conversion to keep headaches down?

Thanks much for any suggestions/pointers/help!

Let he who is without clue kiss my ass
