I was thinking that once the packages start moving into the buildsystem, 
the whitelist will be empty : at that stage we just need some way for 
the QA team members to be able to click a link or enable a tick box 
somewhere and have it added to the whitelist.

Also, i think we should have the basic rpm level tests running inside 
the buildsystem for 5.7, so that will be an additional point of 
reference / data point to consider ( and for fail's to get marked as 
such automatically ).
