RobC writes in "I would like to nominate Philip for FotT for his prompt triaging of misfiled bugs in the Firefox::Developer Tools component in Bugzilla. He's a great help at keeping that component clean and it's appreciated."
Aakash says "I'd like to nominate Henrik Skupin for leading a great testday effort this past Friday for testing the new Addons Manager. He worked 16 **very** active hours pushing 30-40 people in channel to file 55 (!!!!) total bugs on the day; a Testday record."
