To the Testing Core Team: As you know, we have been discussing what we
might do to increase the number of testers, particular as we approach
the final release. The statement below will be sent to the
openSUSE-project mailing list.

IMHO you are completely wrong. Sorry.

The naming Have nothing to do with the number of testers.
It is related. It can be seen from traffic on the factory mailing list,
the Hungarian S.u.S.E. mailing list and also my experience with an
upstream project, syslog-ng, where I'm community manager. The first
widespread testing comes with beta and even more with RC.

* Make test priority (this week, please test..." with bugzilla instant
This would help. A new priority every week, with affected developers
listening on bugzilla and probably also on IRC would be very helpful. I
see, that it works fine for Fedora.

* stop saying "factory don't have to be used in production :-). The
crazy warning message was already fixed ("no assistance will be made")
Well, it can be used, but only with a few years of Linux experience, not
for new users. Also not practical where downtime costs $$$.

* early advertising as "factory works quite well on XXX hardware, you
are encouraged to use it" could also widen the user base.
For that you need to do some recruitment work on non devel mailing lists
and forums. But for beginner users I'd still not recommend it. Just
think of packman and binary nVidia / ATI drivers.
