I'd like the developers to help define the tests, then I figure Red Hat
QA guys will run as much of it as they can, and Red Hat developers and
perhaps Fedora contributors (if there's interest) can pitch in and help
run the rest of it.

That sounds great. I wouldn't wait for us to have a wiki, you can always
write content elsewhere, including fedora.us wiki, and then we can move
stuff to the wiki when we have it. Or whatever.

I don't know what the best approach is. Maybe we should put the files to
be used in the tests in an RPM package - then the kickstart files for
the test machines can just include that package ;-)

The Mozilla smoke test caillon posted looks like exactly the right kind
of thing that we should have covering all the major desktop bits.
