I've already run my favourite tests ;) The value of external testing is
in the extra coverage which it gives - different hardware, different
tests. And also different requirements: there may be things which I
think are cool, but which you think suck.

So... The real test is of course "daily use". If it works OK in daily
use for you, and for everyone else then we ship 2.6. By definition.

Of course, on top of daily use it is best to run additional stress
tests to find problems more quickly. Large desktop applications, web
and file servers, databases, etc would be interesting. CD burning,
funny old PIO-mode IDE drives, stress testing with gigabt NICs,
you name it. Coverage.
