Hi All,

I have set up a virtual private server with the autotesting scripts
[1] specifically for debian-live.

1: http://autotesting.livecd.org/debian-live/

These scripts will test some of the images built on the autobuild
server [2][3][4][5].

2: http://live.debian.net/cdimage/
3: http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-live/autotesting.git;a=blob;f=daily.lst;
4: http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-live/autotesting.git;a=blob;f=weekly.lst;
5: http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-live/autotesting.git;a=blob;f=monthly.lst;

The output of the autotesting is a video of the images being booted
via qemu[5] as well a jpeg showing some frames from the video.  A
quick look at the jpeg gives an indication if the images booted
successfully (and can save my poor bandwidth).

At the moment the most successful boots are from the the monthly
builds [6], rather than the weekly[7] or daily build[8].

Ideally I will synchronise the weekly and monthly testing just after
the images are built. I plan to keep available the last four sets of
the daily, weekly and monthly tests.

Kudos to the Morphix [9] project (Hi Alex [10]), during the
Morphest[11] where Jure[12] sparked the idea of automated testing.
