In the latest Torley‘s tutorial I found more important jira issues for animations that requires our votes:
VWR-1793 :: Hand Poses Not Uploaded Correctly
VWR-5587 :: Setting a Facial expression when uploading an animation has no effect (no facial expression included in the animation)
VWR-4098 :: Avatar hands frequently and seemingly randomly go open with spread fingers
You could also vote for the jira issue I reported asking for more options in the upload menu:
VWR-4192 :: new options for the upload animation menu
