You make a fair point, but with 189 tickets filed in the OLPC Trac,
I'm not sure one can say Mikus hasn't taken the time to provide
feedback in standard configuration.

My main point is that these snap reports to the list (immediately
after release) usually come in before I can even complete the download
and I personally find them very useful.  There have been occasions
where the reports prompted me to jump right in and update and others
where I made a decision to wait for a subsequent dev-build based on
what I was interested in testing.

I've always been interested in Mikus' unusual SD card config as it
allows him to locally host and conduct tests on some many activities
in rapid succession.  it is not necessarily important from a
deployment's point of view, but it is of great interest to prolific
activity testers like Mikus, and we could certainly use more of those.
