This will be a pool of 20 or 40 SNOs that are willing to beta test new features before they are released for everyone. Considering the recent backlash of SNOs regarding release of features that are not completely developed, this would greatly help.
This BETA group would have a special restricted forum section where they report issues that devs can directly see and fix. This section would be strictly for Storj and BETA testers. Other SNOs can’t post or view any content.
The number of BETAs could be such that it includes all platforms from Linux/Windows docker/GUI. So everything is duly reviewed and then shipped out.
