How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Package Flight Groups - Beta Transition

Once a flight group is selected for a package Flight Submission it cannot be changed.

Allowing it to change would help greatly in our release process. Currently to perform our final Staging test we submit a package flight and add a group that targets our internal testers. This works well.

Once we complete internal testing many time we want to open up the distribution to a larger group. The group on the submitted flight cannot be changed without submitting a new flight which may require a rebuild since the same version cannot be submitted and waiting for another certification many time it is not just a couple hours and can be over night.

If we could change the group with out a resubmission this would allow us to transition from internal test to an external beta very easily. Even better if multiple groups are allowed we could just add the external group and remove it as we like and still keep the internal group linked. Less group management in the latter option of using multiple groups.
