Time is running fast, and since the developers (reading the most recent 
report of the ESC) did their bits to help us with better QA, I would 
like to take a more comprehensive approach then in my previous mail.

Goal is (as discussed before) get more people's focus on early testing, 
rather then with the first RC, and also more people testing :-)

I have draft the following schedule with special events:

- With the first beta, two day's organised bug-hunting:
   - Friday 9 and Saturday 10 December
   - the beta-0, makes sure that reliable builds are there for all
   - mail all people on l10n lists and ask to spread the news
   - mail to discuss & users
   - people available on irc for guidance

- during the months, a two day's competition:
   - Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 January
   - a prize for the three that post most bug-weight in those two day's
   - bug weight: points/issue:
     1 for normal, 1,5 for major, 2,5 for every blocker issue
   - severity needs to be confirmed by QA specialists (in max one week)
   - prizes are e.g. sweater and mug.
   - QA specialists cannot win a prize
     (they should just get the sweater and mug without that)

- with the first RC, two day's organised bug-hunting
   - Friday 20 and Saturday 21 January
   - ... (see above for more)

Of course, people @marketing will be able to help spreading the 
information (in steps ...).
