Supertesters - make & accept nominations
RM Bauer has also proposed an increase in the number of "supertesters" who can work the maemo.org QA queue. After an extended period of quarantine, three supertester votes can carry a package through to Extras. Rob writes: We are in need of supertesters to promote packages on Extras. This is a crucial function which is currently suffering because the list of supertesters and promotion rules have not been updated in a long time. [...] We should have people who have a demonstrated interest in maemo and ability to test maemo packages. It is vital that supertesters are trusted members of the community. A single supertester will be able to promote someone else's (not their own) package.
Anyone can get involved in testing the Extras-testing queue without invitation or requiring permission. The supertesters are those who consistently are shown to make the "right" decision to help minimise the number of other people required in this crowdsourced activity.
