I'm not entirely sure your perception of these 'communities' is
accurate. The LXDE list had one mail in the entirety of May, for
instance. (It's had a staggering four so far this month).

Xfce is substantially more active, and we might have more success in
getting testing if we make a stronger effort there, I guess. But I am
not sure the Fedora LXDE 'community' is strong enough that we can
reasonably expect contributed testing on a regular basis.
