Ubuntu Studio 12.10 Beta 1 Image testing

Well actually we do recommend people to test daily images EVERY DAY
(honest), so we didn't actually restrict the testing period. However the
builds BEFORE 20120905 are, well, bad due to ubiquity, so then we only have
2 days (20120905 and 20120906) to test. And since the release team has
marked it as ready, we can't argue. Actually it is the job of the project
leader (Scott Lavender) to determine whether it's good or bad, so we can't
challenge it.

Anyway we are already lucky. I heard Xubuntu isn't even going to release
12.10 Beta 1 due to test failures.
