I think the point is: we don't have enough testers for the Beta and RC
release, if these people would join the Quality Team during testing
this would be far more valuable than only for the final tarball. So
far we are only a handful, and maybe you have testers that do test but
they don't report upstream, nor do they coordinate with us. The KDE
Quality team would welcome a few more hands for that, for the final
tarball it's just a bit late IMHO.
