Sorry, I do not know how to respond your question. (btw, I'm just trying to
help. I'm no qa manager at all). I'm just a good Lubuntu tester as you and
the rest of the testers. So I'm replying what I know.

@phillw: could you show the path of the light, pls?

>From what I know:
The most important goal with these images is simply to find as many bugs as
possible and report them with enough detail that they can be fixed. Finding
the bugs ahead of the milestone crunch is helpful as it gives us more time
to fix them. Of course finding and reporting bugs in the released

I'll try to reply with an example:

See the report from ubuntu-bug/apport:
Date: Thu Jun 20 16:48:19 2013
LiveMediaBuild: Lubuntu 13.10 "Saucy Salamander" - Alpha i386 (20130619)

If you use the command line (and do not remember/keep the ISO as I keep my
testing ISOs):

ubuntu-bug <packagename> --save

I've just ran against my Lubuntu 13.04 against lxpanel:
ubuntu-bug lxpanel --save bug.txt

leafpad bug.txt

InstallationDate: Installed on 2013-08-02 (97 days ago)
InstallationMedia: Lubuntu 13.04 "Raring Ringtail" - Release i386

>From your bug report:

InstallationDate: Installed on 2013-10-07 (0 days ago)
InstallationMedia: Lubuntu 13.10 "Saucy Salamander" - Beta i386 (20130925)

So the date is September, 25, 2013.

Now it'd be nice to include the report from trusty once I saw you added the
nasty #1236417 to the ISO tracker:

Just run ubuntu-bug lxpanel --save bug.txt and attach the file to the bug
report to help the devs:

My 2 cents...

If somebody else has/knows other ways, pls, share it. We'll be enlightened
