Testing upstream GDB builds on all the supported Fedoras nightly.  Fedora
packages I test only on their own Fedora version.  It is easy and automated
using mock.
	FYI GDB regression testing scripts

But this should be a part of a Beaker deployment which I do not much about:

This is sometimes and issue for GDB but almost all of them are the debuginfo
problems which are specific to GDB (but also to Systemtap and other tools).
