Unfortunately, I'm still swamped. While making good progress, there are
still some bits and pieces to be done. So, what I can do is try to setup a
VM next week (I won't manage this week).

Next week sounds great!

However, please be advised that there are some limitations.

There's always a catch! :-)

The VM host
machine still needs an update, which is blocked due to documentation
missing, and I assume that we have to recreate all VMs afterwards. So, there
will be no backup, and that VM can be killed anytime. Please do properly
document things and keep backups.

Fair enough. All the info about tests will probably live on the wiki,
and I expect that I'll always have a local copy of any test data that
we shove into the system.

Please try to give us as much of a heads-up as possible about the VM
going down for updates, so that we can wrap up any in-progress

If you feel uncomfortable with this, and would like to have a VM that cannot
be killed while you are working on it :), I need to ask you for some more
patience until the VM host has been upgraded.

Well it's a bit more exciting when your system can magically disappear
at any time, isn't it?  If you want to help us remember, you could
name the VM something like 'volatile' or 'unstable' :-)

I'll chat with Jonathan and we'll come up with a game plan for
testing. We'll probably do a little prep work and get familiar with
the tools on the volatile VM, then once there's a stable VM, we'll
invite more people to the testing party.
