It is quite usual for really useful feedback to not arrive until a
library is prepared for formal review. Your users before a review are by
definition already fans, and won't give you really useful feedback. It
takes a lot of effort to give high quality feedback, and many of us
can't spare the time until we know the thing we are reviewing is
supposed to be finished. I know that is frustrating, but it is what it is.
