I don't have any good proposal on how to do it, but maybe we should
allow a little bit
more flexibility in the wiki pages and make it a bit more general. 
For example I try to test kubuntu on my laptop, in addition to the
normal ubuntu testing.  It's not someone in my "contract" with
Canonical, but I do it on a low priority basis just for the sake of
it.  But unless you go to my specific laptop testing wiki page, and
look for its kubuntu subpage, you will not know about it.  You could
think someone could be testing kubuntu/edubuntu/etc in a fashion
similar to what we do for the official laptop testing effort. And you
could think someone could test his desktop in addition to his laptop. 
All this could be reported somewhere.

There was a spec/proposal for some sort of testing framework for users
during UBZ, wasn't it?
