Given the "QA person has to confirm it is" requirement, how about not
completely turning this of, but make the BSA e.g. add "possibleregression" to
whiteboard status?
That would:
- keep queries to 'regression' keyword clean for devs
- allows QA guys to query for 'possibleregression' and confirm/reject them
  (thus fasttracking real regressions to devs)

Sorry for reiterating ideas if this was already suggested in the call.


Bjoern, walking back to his tiny black-red-gold flag and looking very reunited
