Well it is *his/their* responsibility to consult and to check up on test run results and user

And I feel that having someone to blame is always nice ;-)

At present is it nobody's job (or everyone's job?) and the result is not really good enough.

So if someone (or two) is willing to take on the task, and we have reasonable confidence in them, we
should 'appoint' them (and 'sack' them if it goes badly). At least we can revert to some previous
known-ok-ish state.

My 2 pence.
