I am very happy that we have Litmus and I really appreciate the work!

I am just slightly nervous that we have only few test cases. Also I am
not sure if we do test runs regularly...

There must be many people around that would want to help with testing.
Every localization team team had its own testers. We need to encourage
them. I think that the feature freeze for 3.5 release will be good point
to get attention. I wonder if we could make it easier with few more

Yes, it might be a good workaround if the transition works reasonable
fast. We could create admins from people that contribute many good test
cases. So, it might balance the load on admins.

Alternatively, people might send test cases to the libreoffice-qa
mailing list and add [TESTCASE] into the subject. It would work the same
way like [PATCH] on the developer mailing list.
