We have not been doing proventesters testing since F13 release, because
there has been no need for it. Additionally, because the critpath karma
requirement has been disabled, there has been no convenient mechanism
for finding critpath updates. Now both of these have changed; QA
activated the proventesters yesterday, and Bodhi now has several ways to
find critpath packages (and fedora-easy-karma hopefully soon will). All
of this should result in rather more karma arriving.

See above, you cannot judge this on current experience.
