I\'m not sure if the project is set up to fully mimick the Rosetta enviornment, but why not release the RALPH work units to many users? it seesm the people here willing to beta test are always begging for work. I joined the day the 64bit client was released, - and got no work.

Why not give work units to multiple users to collaborate and verify? giving 1 WU to 5 different users quituples the number of testers

I thinkthey usually put a few out, see if there are any bugs.
But it depends on the client and what they are testing.
Send a few tasks out, see what happens, then send more out if ok and/or fix the bug test a few again etc..


Also they used to test new job catagories/target out before putting them on to Rosetta, not sure if they still do.

There is no point in sending work out they already know is not going to be usefull anymore. Better the member do some work elsewhere in the mean time.
