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.

For example, I would consider offering to help, and I think my manager would give me some time to do the work, but I am not connected to all of these Fedora teams.  If we find someone who is deep in 1-2 teams have some committed folks to ramp them up we can both solve this problem and grow our number of people able to do this kind of work.

I'd be happy to fill the gaps from the Fedora side to the best of my
abilities. I also look forward to using the interaction as an
opportunity to learn more about the finer points of Atomic.
