But this proposal does not add more people to the dance :)

Anybody can test, and should be encouraged,
and may be not all, but there are more people who can review.
Quozl, Walter, dsd, did reviews. I did reviews, but of course does not have
spend time on the reviews if are not useful to the maintainers.
That is the reason I think we need a plan,
