[maemo-developers] Extras Testing to Extras, again...

ok, here's my proposal: Let the system send out emails to
all testers that voted thumbs down once a new version is
released and remind them to verify if the flaws they've 
complained about are gone.

Or send even an email to all testers of the previous
version to ask them to re-test. I must admit that i
also don't re-check software i've voted for since it's
not that easy to keep an overview on updated packages.
Such an email would imho be acceptible as you earn
karma with this. Perhaps you can even ask not be 
notified of new versions, but also not get any karma
for testing then. This should also saisfy privacy-concerned
