[sane-devel] Testers file?

While searching for testers of the latest Pixma backend patch [1], it 
occurred to me how hard it is to find somebody who can make sure that some 
changes don't introduce a regression.

So what about adding a testers.txt file, where interested parties could 
add their email addresses? Those could be then used by developers as 
contacts to have a confirmation that their latest changes don't break or 
really do enable a new feature.

That could also be implemented as a wiki, where people can leave their 
contact address and the HW they're willing to test for.

Having it as a file within the repo would require the developers to take 
care of it.

Alternatively there doesn't seem to be a 'sane' wiki, however if one would 
get created it'd need some links from the http://www.sane-project.org/ ,
pages optimally maybe from http://www.sane-project.org/contrib.html.

What do you think?
