You must be referring to Will rather then Jeremy here and the only 
reason in increased QA employment surge from Red Hat is because Will 
manage to sell his dream pony ( AutoQA which is a win win for everybody 
btw ) and at the same time convince upper level management of Red Hat of 
the benefits of strong Fedora QA treatment on the bits before they reach 

I dont know how much of a history lesson you are given at Red Hat when 
you sign up but I suggest you take of your QE glasses ( QE!=QA ) study 
the history between Red Hat and Fedoraunity even after they literally 
saved the official GA release which was what FC5 or FC6 ( Anaconda 
installing the wrong kernel arch for those that dont remember that screw 
up ) amongst all the good work unity does and the reason why bug-zapper 
( which in it's current form is more or less on John Poelstra and Jon 
Stanley work if I can recall correctly ) are on it's own channel on 
freenode ( they used to be on the QA channel )  and as I pointed them 
out when they were making the 3 attempt to get triages up and running 
that it would not solve the underlying issue ( which it has not up today 
) then perhaps you start seeing things a bit from community perspective .

How much control would I get if I pour $1 $10 $100 $1000 $100000 $1000000?
