    Their job description might list "test new software releases
    before putting them into production," and not "join the PHP
    QA team."  Joining the QA team for downloading a simple
    pre-release sounds a bit too much bureaucratic.

    And just to give an example.  In the past, I've installed
    various pre-releases of the Linux kernel.  If something
    broke, I reported it.  But I don't think I would have ever
    joined a Linux QA team.  Enabling more people to test RCs on
    a wider range of systems will hopefully produce more feedback
    and hence increase the quality of the release process.
