We're getting ready to release our first 2 week atomic update on Tuesday and Dusty Mabe has raised 2 potential release blockers that were not part of automated testing. It's good that he caught them, but it's also a bit of a stroke of luck. Since there is no official QE for this release, who should own verifying that there are no release blocking bugs prior to every automated release and escalating if there are? If no one raises the blocker, we'll have no way to block the release.

The Cockpit team has automated tests that could feed into this. These
run thousands of tests per day.

Our tests run on top an operating system, rather than randomly
components. That is, the Cockpit tests would currently run on top of an
Atomic Host release.

We do currently have one of our verify operating systems that pulls
Fedora updates-testing and tests against that. We could have a verify
machine that pulls in from a release candidate ostree repo and provide
some testing that way.

Obviously this has nothing to do with 'ownership' but might be helpful.
