This shouldn't be too hard to do, I'll take up this part, and test the different
DEs (esp GNOME 3) and the other normal tests to be done. Would it be possible to get
nightly builds downloaded a day before from someone in pune? (It will be a huge download
since all spins will have to be downloaded to be tested)
The other nice thing to do is to figure out how to follow-up and
in touch with the participants. For example, we seem to have a small
bit of success at CoEP (I'm not holding my breath yet though :))
