If it's easy, it will attract people too. QA is frightening for a lot of 
users because it looks like technical when it's not. The tool should 
help that and currently Litmus is not fulfilling that.

In that case we know that we can't extend people time, so let extend the 
number of contributors by providing an easy way to participate. Tools 
are only tools but this is what our contributors are playing with, see 
Pootle for example, it's the same here, it should be as easy as and as 
flexible as Pootle.
