imho the beta process is a little to oblique and non-directional for specific UAT 
testing; it would be great if there was a mailing list or something that patch writers 
could use to release a list of "must be tested by UAT because fundamental customer 
facing change" or something. As much as I love bugzilla and the fb+ feature I don't 
think it is necessarily the primary tool for choice for a UAT user group; it is hard 
to find the relevant bugs so often times it is just pure chance; I was testing the 
beta on and off but only found out about the correspondence feature on the Friday when 
the new release was mentioned.

Any way it could UAT be integrated into a more streamlined / focused work flow?
