I think that it is a misunderstanding of this announcement mail. What do
you mean by no interest in QA, please?

We send several announcements for each build:

	+ reminder about a release:
		+ is sent before the tag is created
		+ warns developers and QA that there is last
                  chance to commit a fix or escalate a critical bug

	+ announce of a tag and branch (this mail):
		+ is sent when the tag or branch is created
		+ it informs developers and QA that all further fixes
                  will go into the next release
		+ also it is a heads up for QA that the related build
                  will be available soon

	+ announce of builds for early testing
		+ is sent when builds are available at
		+ allows to do smoke test before the builds are
                  available on mirrors and accessible from official
                  download page

	+ announce of builds available on official download pages
		+ is sent when builds are on mirrors
		+ allows testing by many people
		+ if it is RC1, there is usually more than
                  one week to report bugs before the
                  deadline for RC2

I have just fixed it. The .msi files had permission 700. Also
the debs had strange permission.

We have finally started to provide all builds by TDF-owned machines.
Any change could bring regression. Cloph, please make sure that it is
better next time ;-)
