Ryan  announced the availability of a candidate on the 31st of May,  IIRC.
This  was  posted  to  wp-testers, but there  was  no  apparent  response.
Therefore, I doubt many people bothered to 'knock' on it.

Maybe  there ought to be some incentives or hype, much as in the Bug  Hunt
(with  or without bounty) last year. I personally lost some motivation due
to  decreased  response  and  activity on Trac. While  I  still  have  the
nightlies  (re-)installed  every  night,  I rarely take them  for  a  spin

Best wishes,
