    • bug 594178 stirred up discussion
      • discussion: This would have been caught if we actually tested studies. Q: how much test pilot studies work shoud we get involved? We have access to real studies before the go live. Since these studies are dynamic, we need to ask questions on which areas are regressions? Next steps is to sit down with the TP team and get some more analysis on the study. Tracy to own
