I am leaning in the direction of reinstalling -- especially if this takes a few more days. Everything is backed up except for a few small files. I have to live with this for the next 6 months so I want it to be right.
What do think the "official" recommendation regarding reinstalling is going to be?
I haven't heard any official recommendation. I would think if you are using RC or Stable if you are doing all the updates you should have the finished product, or nearly so. But we should soon see.
