Well the issue is that the channel is just being used for the QA Meeting
but the rest of the week is really quiet, IIRC in the creation of the
channel the idea was to have a common place for people on the
#ubuntu-testing and #ubuntu-bugs to hang out but i don't see a lot of
discussions on it.

Yes, I'll prepare something and send it to the Ubuntu QA list.

Thanks for the survey results Ara!,
