Adding test coverage to Ubuntu

Registered by Gema Gomez

Start building a comprehensive regression testing suite, this blueprint is a discussion to decide where to start adding test cases, so basically choose the most important missing tests and have a clear list of priorities.

Next steps to improving coverage during Q:
- Migrate existing tests that are run by the QA team to UATH
[hggdh2, psivaa] * Kernel SRU tests (QRT, xfstests)
[hggdh2, psivaa] * ISO Server Testing (smoke testing)
[jibel] * Upgrade testing
[jibel] * Auto package testing
[nuclearbob] * QRT Testing
[mrazik, retoaded] * Autopilot
[nuclearbob] * Bootspeed
[gema] * Bootspeed testing graphical representation design
[nuclearbob, gema] * Implementing the new graphs

- Adding new tests to UATH:
[gema,mrazik, babyface] * Networking testing
[slangasek] * IPV6 testing

07/20/2012, gema: These test cases are more development or package level test cases than testing we can run at system level on the images. I think they are good to be run at development level but do not grant UTAH migration, since they are very specific and low level.

[hggdh2] * 12.10 kernel testing integration with 12.04 ( )
[jibel] * LibreOffice tests
[jibel] * jdk tests
[hggdh2, psivaa] * Adding Kernel SRU testing on XEN
[hggdh2, psivaa] * Adding ecryptfs tests to Kernel SRU testing
[nuclearbob] * HDAudio
[josepht] * Power management (cking)
[pitti] * Automatic suspend/resume UI integration tests, VM based (covering indicator menus, screen savers, inhibition by video player, automatic timeout, and low-on-battery)
 * hardware specific suspend/resume: cking has scripts which do this; apw also has a script for this available by default with checkbox: /usr/share/checkbox/scripts/suspend_test
[babyface] * Adding Chinese images to smoke testing
[babyface,jibel] * Add automated UI driven ubiquity test cases (migrate the tests from )
[psivaa] * AMD64 and Mac iso testing

- Adding new HW/infrastructure:
[hggdh2] * Fully automating ARM testing (panda boards)
[retoaded, nuclearbob] * Deploying MAAS in the lab and start using it for provisioning machines

- Keeping track of results
[babyface] * Assign responsibilities to keep an eye on regressions
[gema] * Test case guidelines
[gema] * Analyse coverage as a whole and list holes in our coverage

How to add test jobs to jenkins
- Do not use matrix jobs because there is no plugin to count results in that case
