I actually hadn't considered doing a formal liaison program, like Oslo, in QA
before. Mostly, because at least myself and most of the QA cores have a decent
grasp on who to ping about certain topics or reviews. That being said, I realize
that probably is only disseminating information in a single direction. So maybe
having a formal liaison makes sense.
I'll talk to Doug and others about this and see whether adopting something
similar for QA makes sense.
