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.

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  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 :)
