I've put a revised set of testing information and posting instructions up on
the Xubuntu Testing <> wiki page.

Because we're in the pre-Herd 5 development cycle, please focus on doing
short tests of the nightly releases.  There's some good info on the
different types of tests on the Testing
Info<>page.  Be
sure to check out the section that explains updating your nightly
image using rsync!  There's no need to do a full 600MB+ download each time.

If you've posted a test to the "Current" page within the past few days, that
test has been archived to the

If you have any comments or suggestions on how the pages can be improved,
please let me know.  I expect some refinements in the next few days.
Hopefully this is a good start, though.  Thanks, all.
