Hi Elfy,

I hope I can be one of the helping hands here. But as I am pretty new to
doing music stuff with Linux, I hope to use the exercise of doing test
cases to get to know the Ubuntu Studio applications. This will be
combined with a bit of bug triaging, which also helps to identify use
cases that could be test cases (some bug reporters also have unusual use
cases which will be ignored for now ;-) ).

As a first step I have added Audacious to the list of Test Cases. I
found a bug requesting a test case, which is "Fix Released", but it does
not appear in the qatracker yet. The bug pointed me to the relevant lp
branch for the test suite, and I was able to work through it. I would
like to expand the test suite with two more test cases (playing a midi
file & playing a CD).

So I suppose I should submit a new bug against ubuntu-manual-tests
asking for the extra test cases, and then I could merge the existing one
to my own branch & begin working on it?
