Announce: Upgrade testing

Hello all,

I'm pleased to announce that after lots of fixing packages,
infrastructure, and scripts, automatic testing of distro release
upgrades is now back:

All except one scenario now succeed, and that red one is a problem
with the test scripts (it already succeeded several times, I'm looking
into that now).

We test a number of different scenarios like desktop, server, server
tasks, on i386 and amd64, from 12.04.{0,1,2,3.4} (different due to the
backported LTS enablement stacks) and 12.10 to 13.10 and trusty. This
is also running various post-upgrade tests that X still starts up, all
python modules work, conffile prompts did not happen, and similar:

If you have an idea what else we should be checking after upgrades, or
how the existing tests can be improved, please file a bug here:

Many thanks to Maarten Lankhorst for fixing the upgrade from
12.04.{1,2,3,4} and to Jean-Baptiste for his patience with all my
