Half the battle is finding issues. Coming up with new tests is
tangential to core and feature work, but is directly applicable to
shaking bugs out of nightlies, etc.
Besides, I have to know that automated tests exist to file failure bugs
against them. ;)

I'd say that the S/N ratio is so high because there are too many things
crammed into this list. IMHO, specific lists for specific topics would
help with improving focus. wp-users for user feedback and feature
suggestions; wp-support for OMG help; wp-devs for implementation
discussion; wp-plugin-devs for plugin help and ideas; and wp-testers
for all things test-related. But that's just my $.02 on the topic.
In any case, I guess it looks like I set my expectations wrong. I'll
keep an eye on this list, even though it's a little higher-traffic than
I generally keep in my inbox.
