In order to get more testers/feedback, how about posting the
availability of test packages (with appropriate caveats about the nature
of the packages, and outlining desired bug-reporting procedures) to
centos-announce at centos.org?

Good idea.  Looked for ticket entries on the firefox test version 1.5
I've been using and found nothing.

Either approach seems OK, or perhaps a combination - a bugs.centos.org
report with details and an e-mail with a pointer to the report to devel
