[Lubuntu-qa] Fwd: Re: Alternate testcase changes

I want to add:
1. I really think we should have a test-case for 'Encrypted LVM'
2. I can think of situations, when 'Encrypted home' is a better
alternative. We can add such a test-case, if the Lubuntu users think it
As it is now, these two test-cases would be independent, because it does
no longer work with them in combination. If it is important, we can ask
the developers to fix the bug(s) so that the original alternate
test-case works again.
