We like to have primarily tested:
- time/timezone setting with UTC and localtime
- If the boot device gets fine detected during archiso boot hook
- grub bootloader installation
- USB images test, here if your USB controller gets detected.

If i moved the RCs finally to public dir i could make this annouce on
arch-general. IMHO i could not post anything to "Announcements, Package
and Security Advisories" forum on bbs? Maybe this is something you,
Aaron, have to do then...
