Yes, that's correct. Though there is one thing concerning the tests, 
again - for years we had an idea to merge at least some of the tests to 
upstream (so the issues could be discovered and fixed directly by 
upstream, avoiding the 'upstream -> distribution or LSB testing -> 
upstream' chain). But currently this is not so easy, we should be able 
to provide a really standalone test suites for this (this is a question 
risen by Robert discusses in a parallel thread about "new world").
