Well, I wish we have this more clearly defined, and people guided on
that. Defining that in non-optimal way would waste effort and impede
progress and improvement. So, with optimal workflow in mind, I'd like
to suggest following breakdown:
1. Mentor regularly builds images for a machine, does minimal
confidence testing on them (it boots, GUI basicly works), and uploads
images to the official download area.
2. Testers take *those* official images (not build some possibly
random images themselves), and do more detailed testing, report bugs,
and re-test those bugs against new snapshots.
I started a wiki page on that, http://www.linuxtogo.org/gowiki/MachineMentors ,
and more discussion and updating it would be appreciated.
