> Well, you can get rid of the "QA Project Team" but you would then need to replace it with something like the Tempest Project, or perhaps the Test Project.  You still need a PTL and cores to write, review and merge tempest fixes and upgrades, along with some of the tests.  The Interop Guideline tests are part of Tempest because being there provides oversight on the style and quality of the code of those tests.  We still need that.

SIGs can totally produce some code (and have review teams), but I agree
that in this case this code is basically a part of "the product" (rather
than a tool produced by guild of practitioners) and therefore makes
sense to be kept in an upstream project team. Let's keep things the way
they are, while we work out other changes that may trigger other
organizational shuffles (like reusing our project infrastructure beyond
just OpenStack).

I wonder if we should not call the SIG under a different name to reduce
the confusion between QA-the-project-team and QA-the-SIG. Collaborative
Testing SIG?
