I have this idea of what areas we as QA should work:

[tinderbox]
guys working on tinderbox and reading the logs and opening bugs, if time
allows also fixes them.
(all tinderbox bugs will be required to be addressed by maintainer in
long term)

[daywatch/nightwatch]
guys following on -commits and checking if someone does not break the
tree :] Usually fixing themselves or slapping maintainer to do so
(privately not on -dev, everyone has a bad day :])

[amish]
puritans :] these guys will proactively check the main tree for qa
issues using various tools and removing everything that does not fit in
:] (patches/ebuild-coding/whitespace fixes/...).

[treecleaners]
Guys responsible for maintaining profiles and removing packages that
in long-term fails to meet up QA standards.

[overtakers]
guys responsible for unmaintained Gentoo areas. They are not actually
maintaining the things, but motivating users to work on those areas and
possibly thanks to those actions the team gets out overtakers overview

[backbone]
scripters, writing all those fancy tools we could use to do above tasks

[QA]
all of us should provide help and support to fellow devs when they have
some migration up ahead, and we should promote that they should ask us
first before trying to do some mass changes

So what do ya think?

Cheers

Tom
