We're all contributing what we can in the limited time we have available. If you feel being 
ignored, my apologies. Though that's probably because the devs ran out of time/energy not 
because your opinion didn't matter.

As for the obscure new skills, that depends on what we are talking about. I think most users 
should be capable of installing a nightly build of gnucash to test the current state of the 
program. That option is available on Windows and linux.

We do pre-releases for each major release. For GnuCash 4.x there were 3.902 to 3.906. Those 
were the "official beta" releases as far as I can tell. We did catch and revert another behavioural 
change thanks to user testing during that cycle (that reverted change involved the way column 
preferences for registers were stored) so it does matter if you test.

But perhaps I'll just have to back off myself. I believe I'm getting burned out on gnucash 
support. Sorry.
