I think Anaconda should stay we need to expose the installer to as much
testing as possible ( AutoQA should be able to take care of kickstarts
installation testing but that certainly leaves the GUI one out which the
regular end users is exposed to ) and frankly I think the problem lies
elsewhere I sometimes have a gut feeling that Team anaconda is not quite
following the same rules and regulation as the rest of the community. I
would like the QA to receive a bit where they're at and where they're
going at the start of each release cycle so we can monitor Anaconda
progress. When AutoQA can do Anaconda GUI installation testing I think
it's safe to say we can remove it and then just have couple of Targeted
Anaconda Installation Test Day's.
