If there is a solution that addresses the problems identified during
F-13, and it can be implemented in *short* time.  It would be
compelling.  I'm a fan of solving problems with tooling, but I'm not
convinced that is where our big investment should be for the upcoming
release, or that it fully addresses the problems encountered during

I outlined 3 basic blocker bug process recommendations that are
attainable+sustainable and address the problems we had during F-13 [1].
If someone feels flags are the better solution, and can develop a
proposal for creating bugzilla flags, the policy for managing them, and
bot automation to enforce them, I'm sure we'd all be happy to provide

However, I left that out of the F-14 QA recommendations because I'm not
convinced that's the best use of our time.  If you are looking for
something to work on to improve F-14 QA, check out (or add to)
