It would be worthwhile that someone set up a testing environment that 
automatically downloads and installs the latest OpenBSD and package versions, 
and runs these standard tasks through standard programs, as a way for users to 
be more spared from being the first to discover these bugs (and with the 
associated latency of taking a couple of days for someone to debug it, I guess 
normally this means the user will have no given-program for a couple of days).

Webdriver provides an API to operate a web browser, . I wonder what API is out there to operate X in a 
similar fashion.

Such a testing suite could send automated emails to bugs@ or misc@ .

I know failed builds are detected and reported in this way automatically today 
using, what's the name, the.. laundry build bot, which sends emails with the 
list of packages that don't build on a given architecture.

As of today, what package testing is automated by anyone?
