But the problem at this point isn't finding bugs. We already have an
abundance of known bugs and issues. Thus, I fear that currently, new
users would just be discouraged by all the existing problems, and even
if they do find new bugs, there's a big risk that they'll be lost in the
noise, or remain unfixed for a long time.
Eventually, I hope that things will work well enough that we'll need new
users to find more bugs, but I don't think we're there yet.
