spamassassin-dev: Automated monthly tested Ubuntu releases

Automated monthly tested Ubuntu releases

I've had automated daily builds from trunk for Ubuntu set up for several
months, running them on my personal server:
https://launchpad.net/~spamassassin/+archive/spamassassin-daily
Works great. It's nice and simple and clean, the only changes to the
source synced from trunk are to add a directory containing rules to satisfy
the Debian build setup (copied from Debian's packages).

Yesterday I created two more Personal Package Arcives:
https://launchpad.net/~spamassassin/+archive/spamassassin-test
https://launchpad.net/~spamassassin/+archive/spamassassin-monthly

My plan is to:
1) Copy the latest builds from -daily to -test. (There are web links to do
   this easily.)
2) Run that on my server for a month, and if there are no problems:
2) Copy the tested builds from -test to -monthly, then copy the latest
   from -daily to -test again.

I did the first copy from -daily to -test yesterday, so the first build in
-monthly will be ready in about a month.

I figure with several people on this list running trunk, and me reading
it to see if any interesting problems pop up, as well as running it
myself, I should be able to keep up reliable monthly releases with
approximately no work.

I thought this would be a good time to see if you folks had any input
before mentioning it to @users. And I would, of course, appreciate it if
anybody else wanted to run -test to help with the testing - maybe people
already running trunk.
