Hi Robla,

Any comments on how we can smoothen our deployments and get timely updates
on issues your release engineering team is facing (such as scap problems

Is there an irc channel or mailing list we can all be on to get better
communication about our fast evolving deployment architecture so that it is
easier for teams such as ours (i18n) to do deployments.

Let us know.
