Yes, it's the same. We are working on making these results available 
publicly and adding more post upgrade tests.
The flavors currently covered are edubuntu, kubuntu, lubuntu, 
ubuntu-mate and kubuntu.

If you want to contribute, the project is on LP [1]

Ubiquity tests are only executed for Ubuntu but it is pretty 
straightforward to deploy them for other flavours. The tests are a 
subset of the manual tests described on the iso tracker.

The code is part of Ubiquity [2] If you plan to use it for your own 
flavour and need some help with the deployment ping me (jibel) on 
#ubuntu-quality on freenode.
You can also contribute to this project by adding more test cases :)
