It would be great if we could do such tests, but I'm afraid there is not 
much free manpower here on the list for additional tests?!

I, for example dislike to get messages for lot's of test requests 
without having time to proceed them, and developers having subscribed 
here also will not be happy with those additional mails.

Because I am currently trying to reduce mail LibO mail flood because I 
miss too many important mails, it might be that I will have to block 
those [CFT].

I wonder whether for most test requests a Bug would be a more consequent 

If there has not been a Bug report, the developer creates one with 
Status PLEASETEST (currently not used here), adds descriptions due to 
Bjoern's suggestions, everybody who did tests adds himself to "CC", and 
if someone finds a problem, he submits a new Bug with "Blocks Testbug". 
I believe that would reach possible testers more determined than 
announcements on qa mailing list.

But let's watch what will happen here.

Best regards
