I see a new version was released in January :

	 	Tk-804.028_502  	 [Download] [Browse]   	30 Jan 2010  ** DEVELOPER RELEASE **

Was that version considered for adoption ?

Yes, we /are/ discussing "pretest", and I assume (I hope correctly)
that you want pre-testers.  My point is that you are making it
unnecessarily difficult for pre-testers to even get started --
surely it is not that difficult to write a brief introduction to
the process of pre-testing that actually /helps/ potential
pre-testers rather than acting as a deterrent ?
