Hi Rainer, all

More intensive testing is not the problem. Your TSC summary shows there are
still 80 regressions. At a rate of 1 fix per day that would take over 2.5

The problem is that there is a new release each month (sometimes 2 releases
in the same month)

It is reasonable to expect that these new builds will have more features
(especially the 3.6.x) so new bugs and new regressions will be added...

And since for each pre-release period, which happens monthly, the priority
are the blockers, regressions will tend to accumulate and overall quality to
decrease as mentioned by Nino on this topic (I agree with him)

So, again, I think that as boring as it might be for the devs, they should
concentrate on the regressions...

I am well aware that this is a voluntary project and that everyone has the
freedom to do whatever they feel like... but as a project that doesn't seem
to work (especially with such an ambitious release schedule). IMO you can't
be free and ambitious...
