Test that migrations are being assisted by m-a

Registered by Brian Murray on 2012-04-24

There are multiple bug reports indicating problems with migration-assistant and it being unsuccessful in migrating items for people. There doesn't seem to be much manual testing done of migration-assistant so it would be helpful if we were to setup automated testing somehow.

Problem Bugs
Bug 986161 - imported bookmarks from ubuntu not found
Bug 986730 - nothing transferred from Windows 7
Bug 980676 - migration-assistant encountering multiple users cause ubiquity to crash
Bug 987902 - nothing imported

Whiteboard

Discuss whether to drop m-a from ubiquity or if someone is going to take on maintenance.

2012-05-24: I was trying to learn ubiquity codebase and how everything gets built & tested. In the process I have attempted to rip out m-a. Branch attached for what it is worth / if it is of any use.
