Christian - I'm taking you to mean that there will be breaking revisions in the 
"near to medium future."  With that the case, I would really suggest that this 
fact need to be front and center: on the main page of the web site, on the 
download page, and in the description provided by "aptitude show gnunet" - at 
least.  There needs to be a warning that this is experimental and pre-alpha 
software, with expected non-backward-compatible revisions to protocol, because 
people rarely return to something that's badly broken or otherwise frustrating. 
 You can of course add that it will help with development and debugging of the 
network if dedicated people are willing to put up with some inconvenience.  
Then, those with fortitude would see that there is a way for their effort to 
make a contribution.   I, for example, have only returned because I'm a 
determined soul.  (And because I'm fighting off the despair of the now 
inevitable striking down of even our states' stop-gap net neutrality bills here 
in the US.)
