I'm actually truly curious, not trying to incite anything here. Given that this seems to be a cornerstone of data access technology for a lot of companies, I can see both benefits and drawbacks to having a community-modifiable code base, much like one would experience with any open source effort. But there's something that leaves me feeling a bit queazy, that, well, my data and the data transactions are potentially fubar'd by community changes. Not to say that Microsoft isn't (as demonstrated historically) capable of fubar'ing anything that I rely on when they come out with the next version, but still, what I wonder about is, does the Entity Framework team carefully review changes and incorporate them into the official release ?

By the way, has anyone actually looked at the code? I briefly looked at it last night, and yikes, it would take a lot of effort to get familiar enough with the code for me to even feel comfortable making minor changes. There is a huge unit test code base, which probably is good, but I haven't looked at whether it's actually useful, but I would hope so!
