Jordan is one of the administrator of the QA team and so is Brian Murray
(Canonical's bug master) and myself. I personally was quite busy
recently due to my move from Switzerland to Canada and starting a new
job, ...

The QA team still has its weekly IRC meeting and so can still be
considered as active and quite well managed. The current problem as I
can see it is that we now have a queue of people waiting for approval as
QA team members, it used to be something Jordan was taking care of.

Now that Jordan needs to reduce the amount of time he spends working for
the Ubuntu community I guess we'll need to define a good process of who
we handle those membership application so both Brian and myself can take
care of them.
