Honestly that sounds like the best suggestion, looking at -test it
doesn't seem like that has a lot of activity so I doubt removing it
would add a lot of traffic to -devel and I find that a lot of the
threads on -devel are very useful for your average tester.

Besides it might be good for unification of developers and testing
community to have us all mingle some more. One thing that would be nice
though would be if we could get a gentlemans agreement to handles bug
confirmation in say the daily Rawhide threads, it might make it easier
to handle and potential scaredypants upgraders would be able to check
that thread every day for serious issues.

Bug triading is an entirely valid activity though and I'd hate for
people to think they did a bad thing by helping out even if they didn't
do it in the preferred manner. We should love our testers, their
insanity helps ensure a great final product.
