Hi all,

with today's soft feature freeze for 4.9 the Beta testing gets closer and 

I think we need to start preparing the beta phase and start discussing some 
ideas in more detail if we want to change anything for 4.9.

Let me start with one idea: setting up a tester team and train them to 
correctly report bugs through the forums. Users who want to participate are 
added to a special group in bugs.kde.org and get a flag they are allowed to 
set to bugs they report to indicate that it has been set in the beta testing.

Beta testers can use the flag to easily search for bugs reported during beta 
testing and developers can use it to see that the report has a better quality 
than the "normal" bugs.
