Friends of the Tree Friends of the Tree

Cheng Wang wrote in saying "Thanks to Drew Ruderman and David Naylor who really stepped up and answered TONS of questions during the 3.6 launch"

Anthony Hughes (:ashughes) wrote in "I'd like to nominate adifire as a Friend of the Tree this week. She showed up to QAs AMO testday not knowing much about testing; only that she wanted to help. By the end of the day she had contributed many test results and asked many questions resulting in a couple of bug reports being filed against AMO. She seemed eager to learn and excited to return for future testdays."
