So - restarting this discussion.

What do you the testers think is the best way forward?

Frankly - I'm happy to do what works best for you.

At the moment the concensus from a few people is use trello to give 
testers the information they need.

Currently we've got a few weeks to get this sorted out - this cycle has 
been a bit odd for QA - but what we do need to do, is be ready for the 
next cycle that being testing for the next LTS.

thanks all
