What kind of tests need to be done always manually? The only ones I can
think are tests for the appearance of applications or tests that require
specific hardware. But in the general case, I do not think that for
every package manual testing will always be required, except while
creating new automatic tests. E.g. if you have a library package with
good unit test and behaviour test coverage and tests for RPM
metadata, what do you want to test manually?
