Package QA Tracker

I guess it would be great if the Package QA Tracker worked like this in my

People can submit QA results like usual. Every 24 hours minimum(when all
the results are submitted for each individual set, passed or failed, like
for Lubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu GNOME, etc) the QA tracker could go through
this cycle:

If a result is passed, just a reset of that specific test case. Allow for
new submissions. If a package is working perfectly fine, why hold it back?

If a result is failed, until the bug is fixed, the test case would stay the
same, but no duplicate test results(if the same bug is found, just a "me
too" in Launchpad, if it is a new bug, a new test case like normal). We
could use the existing function that you can view the details of the bug
with when you hover to get that running. Another alternative option for
this would be to just have a history and before submitting test cases with
bugs, you had to take a look at the history to see what bugs were reported.
Although this alternative option probably wouldn't work, a history
nonetheless is a good idea.

And for the release cycles, if one of these cycles(the proposed cycle)
happen to fall in between these checkpoints, then there should be a way to
indicate, "This was in Alpha, this was in Beta", etc.

I am open to any and all ideas, so feel free to leave feedback.

Have a nice day,
