That's fair. From a resource and quality perspective though, I'd
rather not burden rel-eng and QA with having to maintain, create, and
You do realize that you are faced with exact same problem as are with
spins with " wg product(s)" and the resolution is the same.
The sub-community producing it will have to put up the QA resources to
manage and test whatever is put on top of core/base and I would think
the same applies from releng perspective.
To put this differently as I see it both communities QA and Releng only
serve as overseers and guiding forces but wont put *any* resources
themselves into spins nor wg product(s) since those resources will have
to come from the sub communities producing spins or wg product(s).
