TOPIC: AutoQA update - DevConf update

      * At Developer Conferance, autoqa attendance was quite scarce,
        only 4 people. But at least they had their hands on AutoQA and
        they might help us with something in the future. One of them
        already proposed SELinux-related test and maybe will start
        working on it 
      * [kparal has] posted the sample workshop materials here:
      * [kparal] spoke briefly with Lennart and he seemed interested to
        have automatic checks performed on packages containing systemd
        units. He mentioned some changes that he could implement to
        easily allow us to do so. We agreed that I'll contact him after
        the conference via email and we'll talk more about the details.
      * tflink+kparal are discussing unit+integration+function test
        strategy on autoqa-devel at lists.fedorahosted.org

        is working on a fix and hopes to have something available soon.
      * Nirik suggested it would be good to announce this event to the
