matmarex edited projects, added Editing QA; removed Patch-For-Review.
matmarex moved this task from Code Review to QA on the Editing-team (FY2021-22 Kanban Board) board.
matmarex added a subscriber: matmarex.

(no idea how you managed to remove the task from the workboard and simultaneously move it to a different column on that workboard)

This should be testable on the beta cluster.
