Comment (by robatino):

 I've read the proven tester instructions and believe I understand them,
 except for some confusion on how to know which packages are critical path.
 I can use yum groupinfo on each of the critical path package groups listed
 on the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Critical_path_package
 Critical_path_package] page, but that page also contains non-working links
 to daily generated package lists.  The
 [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Proven_tester Proven_tester] page also
 implies that critical path packages are indicated in their descriptions
 ("Pay particular attention to updates whose description notes that they
 are critical path updates. "), but while using fedora-easy-karma, I saw no
 packages described as such.

 Anyway, I have both F12 and F13 x86_64 installed as VirtualBox guests, and
 each has updates-testing enabled.  I've already run through fedora-easy-
 karma on each, but only felt qualified to chip in on about 2 bugs so far
 (either unfamiliarity with the package, or not having already experienced
 a bug which only affected some users of the old version).  Of course I've
 also used the Bodhi web interface previously.
