Interesting Feedback From a New Tester

I took part in an interesting discussion in #fedora-qa today with
someone who was new to Fedora (coming from Ubuntu) and interested in

He (I assume he, will use for consistancy) came to the alpha download
page on [1], tried to use and install the alpha and
ran into some problems. Apparently, he tried to ask questions in #fedora
and got some gruff "no alpha stuff here" comments before finding #fedora-qa.

I looked at the alpha download page, and there is no reference to qa, no
reference to newer images and nothing about directing questions to test@
or #fedora-qa.

I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I propose that we add some
additional information to that page [1]. At the very least, a sentence
or two about where to direct questions about the alpha and "if you're
interested in testing, see ____ page" which points to new information
(maybe the QA or QA/Join wiki pages?).

This should at least stem some of the alpha related questions coming
into #fedora and hopefully us find some more people who are interested
in testing, too!
