I see a new version was released in January :
Tk-804.028_502 [Download] [Browse] 30 Jan 2010 ** DEVELOPER RELEASE **
Was that version considered for adoption ?

Yes, we /are/ discussing "pretest", and I assume (I hope correctly)
that you want pre-testers. My point is that you are making it
unnecessarily difficult for pre-testers to even get started --
surely it is not that difficult to write a brief introduction to
the process of pre-testing that actually /helps/ potential
pre-testers rather than acting as a deterrent ?
