        for spins
              +ACo Appears this has been resolved
     2. Bodhi feedback patch from fcami (see +AHsAew-Ticket+AHw-infrastructure+AHw
        701+AH0AfQ awaiting review

             2. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tcms+AF8-Comparison
      +ACo Wiki use cases and feature comparison called for final review
        last week.  
      +ACo Based on the comments, I modified the requirements and moved
        previous to formal pages below:
      +ACo Next steps ...
             1. Identify Must-Have +- Nice-to-Have feature to find any
                feature gaps we'd need from Nitrate. Such features will
                firstly be marked in the comparison table+AFs-2+AF0, and then
                summarized in a separate page for reference. Comments
             2. Write scripts for importing xml files from wiki to
                nitrate. The xml files exported from wiki has different
                format from the files to be imported to nitrate,
                therefore, scripts are needed to do the conversion.
                Volunteers are welcomed+ACE

TOPIC: Adjusting ''proventesters'' group to be invite-only
      +ACo Some testers are applying to the FAS proventesters group, but
        not filing a ticket or sending a welcome email (see
      +ACo One suggestion is to make ''proventesters'' invite-only, and
        reflect the change in the +AFsAWw-Proven+AF8-tester+AF0AXQ documentation
      +ACo Group discussed and decided to update wiki documentation to
        clarify process for handling join requests w/o a ticket.  If we
        are flooded with FAS requests w/o a ticket, we will reconsider
        invite-only recommendation

      +ACo new+AF8-koji+AF8-watcher and depcheck branch were reviewed
      +ACo Together with the review of new+AF8-koji+AF8-watcher branch we have

        certain packages. lmacken quickly created a patch, which should
