Phil, I do not need a million Ubuntu users telling me that, I can get
_that_ comment at home, for free :-)  And multiple times a day.

I have read the ISO test cases, but ..

I am not helping at all in testing the install from CDROM.  The easy way to
do that is via a VM, which I think has adequate coverage, and installing on
a spare system (that I will lightly use) would be inadequate, I think.

I am trying to assist in running the test-cases that do NOT require CD
installs, but PPA, unity, etc.  Example is the call I saw this week for
evince.  Since I use evince all the time on my main laptop, it is more
likely, IMHO, that I will tickle a bug there.

I know this is not perfect, but it is relatively painless.

True.  But my idea was to stay on the proposed-updates, and raring, and
feed bug reports into the packages themselves, rather than QA.
