One of the rather important bits of test days is follow-up - we have
people show up, test, file a bunch of bugs. Great. Now what happens?
Hopefully, the bugs get worked on, and a proposed fix is landed in the
affected component (anaconda). Then what? How does the reporter test
that the fix works? We have another test day?

The main test day track tends to get overloaded anyway; do we have a
regular anaconda test day track for each release? Anaconda test days
every two weeks?
