Sorry, I just stumbled across this thread today...
Wrt testing related thing I'd suggest copying the testing mailing-list (
http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/testing) as it's much lower volume and
therefore easier to keep track of things and actually read most messages in
a timely manner.
Also I think that including your request for testing in Michael's
weekly-beta mailing would make sense.
Just my 2 cents,
