The testers list is generally conversations about bugs before they become
Trac tickets. That's the perfect place to discuss things you find.

The Trac mailing list is a notification mailing list only, for every ticket
and comment. You probably don't want that. (On the other hand, I would
recommend the not-as-high-volume SVN list so you can learn from studying our

If you want to help:

Skim core.trac.wordpress.org/report/5 or 6. Most of these tickets require
some inside knowledge (we triage this report every day in IRC -- today was a
few hours straight) but there might be some patches to test and possibly
things to break.

You can best help by testing the new features and looking for holes. Beat up
