[Libreoffice-qa] QA Team Email

Certain members would have access to use it for things such as mass closing
bugs (which we are moving forward with as soon as we get this email
address). So we would have a FDO account linked to the email address where
we could manage mass bug changes very easily. That's one very important use
of it. Other uses will be to possibly announce QA policy changes as we
become more organized, possibly even to sent out our minutes/agenda from QA
calls (not sure about this one yet). Basically anything that is "QA team"
related vs. an individual making a point has the potential of going through
this email. Its use will be quite limited and hopefully this will help for
people to "prioritize" emails from this account accordingly.

Immediate use will be FDO management though.

Welcome to the team, haven't seen you on freenode but feel free to join us
at #libreoffice-qa :)
