The other problem is what platforms do the maintainers have access to. For example, I upgrade both my laptop and desktop when new versions come out; I still have access to 10.5 because the mail/ftp server in my office is a G5 MacPro, but as soon as 10.8 is out, I’ll wipe 10.7 (which is a botch BTW) off and so won’t be able to test neither on SL nor on Lion.
