Test cases would help alleviate manpower issues.  Many of the security 
updates and regular updates are outside my area and I feel some 
frustration that I have to bypass providing karma; however, I am used to 
doing QA work with test cases.  Are they so hard to provide?  Maybe 
certain updates should have test cases, i.e., security updates and 
critical path updates.
