Well, no it isn't. "They" are part of the Fedora project. So are "we",
and we're allegedly the bit that's responsible for quality assurance.

Frankly, I don't think your approach of just sticking our heads in the
sand and pretending .next isn't happening is in the best interests of
Fedora as a whole. It makes sense for the Fedora project's QA team to be
involved in testing of Fedora products, however the details of that work
out. But it's a discussion we should frame properly and involve all the
correct parties in.
