Re: Volunteer to do automatic testing upgrades from Squeeze to Wheezy?
I also missed Peter's first post.
I've got some leisure time and a small cluster of machines (ppc,
x86-64, and arm) I've dedicated for testing, so I can run Peter's
script or some variant, or I can help with making jenkins better.
Should I get started there by contacting Hloger (I've cc'ed him on
this email)? Or is there a better way to get started?

Yes, you're right. In fact, I really enjoy doing Test and Q.A. work,
so probably the best way to start contributing is helping improving
the jenkins instance. I'll get in touch later.

I suspect the best way to help now is to assist holger in making

extended to install and upgrade a squeeze desktop to wheezy, and
compare the set of installed packages if installing directly in
The package freeze make it harder to address the many usability issues
in Debian (as in iceweasel failing to display text/plain inline,
iceweasel not being able to install plugin packages automatically,
etc), which need changes in one or more packages), but these should be
looked at for wheezy+1. I guess using and testing the desktop early
is the only way to improve these things. :)
