that is exactly what alpha versions are for - to prepare for the releases, to
find issues, to get bugs ironed out before a release.
And that is what experimental is for .. to test things that you may want to
release before putting them into sid and making them available to the general
debian user who does not specifically seek out an alpha version to test. That is
why it has appeared occasionally, and why that was mentioned on debian
multimedia maintainers lists, especially as the whole jack2 jack1 system was
being put in place.
That kind of approach is very appropriate - it means it gets built on a wide
variety of architectures and is tested against the various jack versions
available and the whole selection of related apps and libraries that are in the
repo. It sure beats releasing a package into sid and fixing the packaging bugs next.
