For each test, I want to have a link to some official docs (Release
Notes, Installation guide, etc). This is now implemented.
It would be great to test all entries in the release notes, but it often
requires a very good understanding of the problem. (If one knows how to
test it, your patches are welcome).
One thing I wish (but I can't do it alone), is to list/detect all the
applications that require user intervention for the migration (I mean
any intervention other than debconf).
It's now hosted on collab-maint. As usually, contributions are welcome.
Thanks you all for comments (both on this ML, and private email).
