Image testing and Package Testing Suite A

So - here we go then, time to start.

Package testing, you'll need a current 14.10 image - which you can get 
here [1] - obviously while you're installing that you could also do an 
image test for us ;) [2]

On to the reason for the call - we need to start both image and package 
testing, as noted in my previous mail to you - the package tests have 
been changed, so from now until my next call I'd like to see as much 
testing for Xubuntu Testsuite A as can be done. [3]

It would be great to see us build on the successful testing accomplished 
during the last cycle - that's /you/ reading this that didn't report 
things you tested last cycle.

Once you've installed your image - update and upgrade it (or re-install 
and report those results) as you can, then re-test the packages in 
testsuite A. IT doesn't matter if you test more than once - report more 
than once.

You should find that the testcases are right for the version we 
currently have - _if they need tweaking_, this is NOT cause to report a 
bug on the package tracker - _report a bug against the testcase itself_, 
I gave more detail on this earlier in the month [4]

Finally, if you are in a position, like me, to run the dev version more 
or less constantly - when you are using an application - take a look at 
the Package Tracker - read the testcase - if you have covered, or more 
than covered the test, please do report that.

As always - *unreported tests don't count.*
