The UEFI one was kind of a special case. The only people who actually
have appropriate hardware either work for BIOS companies, hardware
manufacturers, or in the testing department of companies like RH, and
everyone who has UEFI hardware certainly knows they do. :) We
intentionally under-promoted that test day because it was really only of
interest to a small and very definitely defined circle of people.

We should, however, have made that rather a lot clearer on the Wiki page
itself, for people who'd got into the habit of just looking at each
week's Test Day as it came. You're right there.

Scheduling is a tricky point, yep: too late in the cycle and you can't
get fixes in, too early and the feature isn't done being written yet.
We're trying to think of ways to optimize scheduling as far as we can.

Thanks for your feedback!
