if Ingo or Linus get fired up on a subject the process for testers is
1. find the latest version of the patch
2. download it
3. if on a slow link, go back to #1
4. compile it
5. if on a slow cpu, go back to #1
6. start testing
7. find bug
8. go back to #1
9. report bug.
with normal developers you can count on the code being stable for a day or two after release, you don't have to keep checking for new releases
yes, this is slightly exaggerating things, but not my much (sometimes it seems like the time it takes for you to read the e-mail announceing a release is enough time for an update)
