Purpose and a fact of being "elitist" group which caused more harm
then good in the QA community and what I'm worried about is that Adam
is resurrecting it for other then purpose after he joined the WG's.
If we agree it serves only the purpose to allow QA members to overcome
other limitation in the project and we ensure that it will *only*
serve and being used for that purpose I'm fine with resurrecting it
but as soon as Adam or any other RH employee starts to mutilate it to
serve it's corporate purpose we put it down.
So it seems like in the end everyone was OK with the idea, so nirik has
set up the 'fedorabugs' inheritance and I've thrown a bunch of people in
the group to start the ball rolling. I'm sure I left quite a few people
out, I just sorta randomly looked through test@ and threw on every
regular I could see whose FAS name I happen to know.
If you're not in the group yet but would like to be, do just go ahead
and apply - I've changed the group not to be invite-only any more - or
ping any of the admins or sponsors, with your FAS name:
roshi (mike ruckman)
for now, if anyone else wants to be a sponsor, just ask or something.
seven people should be enough to be going on with :) admins and
sponsors, do go ahead and throw anyone else who obviously ought to be in
the group into it. you can add people just by entering their FAS name
from the group page in FAS.
as discussed, being in the group is not intended to be actually
necessary for any QA tasks, we're just going to have it to allow you to
get voting rights and fedorapeople space and as a
handy-but-probably-incomplete list of people involved with QA. no plans
to change any of our current tasks or processes to depend on group
membership in any way.
