AFAIK QA always keeps testing things, because there are still bugs to be
found, and things to document for the release, or things to update for
0-day.  The whole point of having a go/no-go decision is that it is the
point where we say we are going without stopping, or we're stopping
until we fix some things and we can go again.  It's a point in which we
tell those that depend on us that we are go, that nothing can stop us.
I had mistakenly assumed everybody knew that's what a go/no-go was.
