Is not an unnecessary burden turning on proventester requirement while
in "Development mode" let alone while we are still in alpha... 

Is it not better to turn proventesters requirments on when we start
composing RC and allow maintainers to push straight to updates until
then ( or some middle path here ) chooses they do to so?
