Hi all,
It is to inform you all that, The Fedora Testing work has been taken
over by Indhu durai from me. She will be the focal point from IBM side.
The main responsibility is to test development, GA releases along with
rawhides on IBM Hardware(system P).I appreciate the cooperation from
Joshua Boyer, James Laska, Will Woods, David WoodHouse, Dennis Gilmore
and all, expecting the same in future.

Lets welcome Her in the Fedora Community!!

--Best Regards

perhaps you could have a tracker bug to keep track of all the bugs you find  
so they can all be easily referenced

how do you propose to achieve this goal?
do you have a test matrix you follow?   do you have resources that you could 
give people access to help with testing?  

It sounds like a great goal.  you should probably work with Will Woods to help 
with his QA efforts.  you should also speak with David Woodhouse about ppc 
specific QA testing.
