​A slight clarification on this response.

The TestLink instance on ​
 http://aootesting.adfinis-sygroup.org/
​was setup and administered by members of the QA area initially, all PMC
members.
​
Some AOO committers involved in QA, myself included, had administrative
capabilities within the AOO TestLink instance but not the actual instance
itself.
