Ubiquity 2.3.18 Pairwise Testing (& Wubi!)

Hello again,

Due to a major bug in ubiquity 2.3.18 [1] we need to hold the pairwise
testing until Evan uploads a new ubiquity and generate new ISOs.

I have set the builds in the pairwise tracker [2] as "rebuilding" to
avoid confusion.

I will follow up this email when everything is ready.

And yes, this bug was a great example of why testing ubiquity prior to a
milestone testing cycle is a good idea ;-)
