We're interested in suggestions about how to get more people involved
with testing and bug fixes.

There's certainly no lack of demand for the features -- all the way from
running on inexpensive wireless routers all the way up to 'enterprise-
grade' distributed storage solutions.  (These are real examples from
various mailing lists.)

So, in your opinion, what's the way to reconcile all these demands
(features + stability + long-term support of release branches) with
a group that is 95%-plus volunteer effort?
