QA Team Updates

Desktop (Juan)

   23.0.1 shipped 8/16 to address WebRTC regression with a few unrelated ride-alongs
   24.0.b4 shipped 8/20
   Tentative plan for beta10 of the fast beta cycles is to make beta10 RC1 instead. This is to potentially get more users in bake time so we can catch random things like the unreliably reproducable Radeon crasher.
   also considering ceasing the process of generating double RCs since this has failed to prevent us from shipping point releases
   Further post-mortem greatness:
   ESR (mwobensmith) 

   Stability (marcia)

    23.0.1 - Radeon crash fixed.  Also Relevant knowledge blocklisting change is workiing.

   Campaign Manager in danger of becoming a "real product" with real QA needs.
   PiCL is basically dead. It has been replaced by FF Accounts (FxA) and Sync 1.1 for the next several milestones leading up to "new" Sync v1.
   Dev an QA continues on FF Accounts (was picl-idp) API, client, and server.
   Big meeting tomorrow to figure out an accelerated schedule for Sync 1.1 Stage environment and, possibly, a separate "new" Sync Stage environment
   Tracking continues on Loads tool, Heka, etc.
   (jbonacci) I sent email to a handfull of QA team members with some quick information and links about "new" Sync. When this gets to regular Nightly releases in/on ELM, we will need help from Desktop and Mobile QA. Will also need some input from Tools and Automation...We should probably meet first week of September to discuss resources.
