We have made the QA tracker open for viewing here:


We need the communication channels to be very high signal to noise when
we are testing.

We also need to limit/control the distribution of packages that have not
been QA'ed for "Branding Compliance" to the smallest group possible to
get the job done.

We do not want bad packages out in the wild (either bad from a "Branding
Compliance" perspective or from a "it breaks your install" perspective).

When we have verified that the packages meet our standards, we will
release them.
