That's not exactly the model I have seen to work. What I have seen works 
really well at other projects is pulling users in as committers in a 
scratch your own itch kind of way. For that to work you need to make it 
clear what contributions you need, you need to make time to coach people 
to become developers, you need to make your users accustomed to the way 
you work as early as possible. It also helps to ask users for 
contributions and offer mentoring help from your side along the way.

I know that this is tedious work that needs a lot of motivating people, 
mentoring people, explaining to people, however it makes for a 
sustainable community of people that do the work out of self interest.
