Off Topic as this is the marketing list.

Quality Assurance:

So is there anyone in the US actually helping with this?

I'm not sure, this is why I asked for it on the projects list. However, 
I'm currently manually testing it before testing the FR version. It's 
pretty current also that we check the en-US version when we find a bug 
in a localized version.

yes - it is very good.

BUT that should not prevent US members to join and I can help them to 
begin, they just have to join the projects list and raise their hand :-)

If I understand correctly the historic focus of these manual test has
been for l10n purposes. It would seem to make sense to have someone run
through the baseline en version of the application, not to mention gb,
au, nz - though I suppose they have no UI component do they.

I had not looked at the QA pages in a while, I must say, and then
yesterday/this morning I did so, not only the en but other languages -
good stuff there all around, really. 

Without regard for language even, IMO it is rather important that this
group of people running this, dull routine, is bolstered, whenever
possible - the more the better for testing.

SO - again to this list - a 3.3.2 (binary for testing) is right around
the corner - if anyone is interested in helping look over the list of
simple manual tests and if you are willing to run some, all, of them
speak up on the projects list[1] for sure. 

I strongly encourage anyone that has not been active with a FOSS project
before, and wants to help, to consider this as a _very_ good way to
start, this QA type work.

[I know that this list isn't all English speakers, but a bunch]
