As mentioned before, we don't really need to re-do the whole set of
tests, but it'd be good to get a few done just to make sure the RC3
image hasn't gone horribly wrong somehow. The only things that should
have changed are KDE and Xfce bug fixes. To check the KDE issue, install
F15 from the KDE live spin then try upgrading with the F16 RC3 DVD; it
should work.
