True.

The context where it stems from was, if you have a look at http://testdays.fedorainfracloud.org/events/38 we have mostly all testers, mentioning Fedora 28 Server on (KVM,ARM,x86_64,VMware,ppc64le) which gives us a bit more idea if there is a failure. Just writing Fedora server dvd gives us absolutely no idea as to how the test were executed. In one certain case during Modularity test day, a certain issue just came up which was specific to ARM ... the profile also lets us know about the coverage across archs and various virtualizations. I felt, we should, flesh out a bit more about the importance of the same. > > In general I'd certainly say that, again, the way in which result > reporting is set up should be carefully considered for each individual > test day; the template and SOP are only guides.

Either could potentially work, but I think the proposal > could do with a few more details... No, I am good with either, I am strictly against people editing the organizing list. The team is defined and kept there to make sure the contributors know where to come and whom to grab hold of , when something is breaking. Randomly editing the section renders to pupose moot.
