For c5, that might be more than whats needed - but lets assume that 
things take a week to resolve because we are also working with the c6 
package. We should be able to get an iso set for 5.6.build1

This is the bit that's hard to put a time on, the QA guys dont seem to 
like being time box'd in; having said that most of them seem to agree 
that since their own process are well rehearsed at this time, it should 
be a lot faster than the c6 stack.

That is an issue for the time being, using irc is just so much quicker 
and more productive at the moment. Ideally, getting some sort of an 
webapp together that lets people coordinate in an async manner would be 
the way to go, but having tried quite a few of them we didn't really 
come up with anything that we could use out of the box. I know that 
Steve has been working on the open-atrium install, but it might still be 
a few months before we can use it for a proper release yet.
