Why, if tests can be automated, do we have a need to go through the
process of spreading a package to mirrors, have people install it and file
bug reports by hand? (Often these reports are a day later already
out-of-date because it was just a matter of time.) Isn't one of our
strenghts that we can automate what we can so we can use our time for all
those tasks that are left?
