I'd like to add a typical requirement/wish from an occasional tester:
- to have an easy way to set up an individual collection of test cases which 
can be reused (first idea: e.g. by tagging them), so that everybody sees, who 
is "subscribed" to a test case (and also on which platform). Thereby, manual 
release testing can be kind of self-coordinated without big effort.

idea/proposal from the German discuss list: to organize "Bug Review Weeks" (in 
contrast/addition to "Bug Hunting Sessions") as community events, preferably 
in native languages and only later on international level, so the learning 
curve / barrier can be kept smooth. 

An additional (possibly somewhat crazy) idea: To gather test cases from the 
community by asking "What functionality do *you* want to be tested? Provide a 
well-thought-out testcase for your personal most needed function (or most 
annoying regression ;-) ".
