I think it means our plans for World Domination are almost complete.
How the hell *else* do you think FOSS developers are going to get feedback on what they need to work on, people; shoot the code over to their fully staffed user testing laboratory?
Nope; *we're* the user testing laboratory: we're users. That's pretty much the social contract, right? We didn't pay for it, but we're welcome to bitch about it -- in fact, they'd *love* for us to bitch about it, as long as what we have to say is informative and constructive. Soliciting people to "try out the new release" never gets you enough replies. So you fall back on esr's favorite phrase: release early and often.
So, what's the big unexpected problem here, again?
