thanks a lot to everybody who stepped up and worked on this.

I agree with what Daniel wrote and have a few points to add myself:

      * We should make sure that testers know that it's not a matter of
        "I started the app and it doesn't crash on start-up". For
        example: I uploaded a gdm to dapper-updates a while ago which
        worked nicely and fixed a bunch of smaller issues. However did
        it break "automatic login" which made people of a school with
        kiosk computers quite unhappy. You might have encountered
        similar examples already. Fixes sometimes do have side-effects.
        We should take testing seriously.
      * Who do we notify of testing? Simon Law too? UWN? ubuntu-users?
      * Who's going to write this all up nicely on the wiki page? :-)

Have a nice day,
