Testing packages and images

With Feature Freeze 2 weeks past, UI and Doc Freeze [1] rapidly 
approaching us we need to push on with testing in order that any bugs 
can be found in time for us to have any chance of getting fixes released.

Final Beta is in the week commencing 22nd September.

I would really like to see more results reported for the Package 
Testsuites A -D [2] - currently we have 1 or 2 results for each test. 
You don't need to specifically test against the testcase - if you are 
RUNNING Utopic and you use one of the packages, just run your eye over 
the testcase, the chances are high that anything you do with an 
application more than cover the test - *_just report it._*

There are image tests available [3] *every day*//when there is no 
milestone freeze. When I last took stock of where we were on that, we had

52 64-bit image tests run out of 580 available, for 32 bit it was worse, 
there we only had 22 out of 580.

You don't need to run _every_ test - even booting the livecd in a vm is 
more than we're getting now. Though once you've done that - it's not too 
far to running an install test for us all.

We did enormously good work last cycle, let's try and catch some of that 
for the remainder of this cycle - and for those of you not counting - 
that is ONLY 8 weeks.
