Comment Regarding Testcases from Litmus?

Mozilla's own QA team keeps testcases for manual testing in a testing tool called litmus. Litmus gathers these testing results for review, and is used to run some large scale testing events (ie Test Days). Quite a number of their test cases would likely be useful to the Ubuntu Mozilla Team as well. - StephanieDaugherty
