Thanks for the feedback David. The reason I considered a test suite is
when I upgraded to 2.0 on a sandbox, I ran into a problem caused, I think,
by our custom authentication classes in backends.py. It surfaced when I
tried to add a reviewer via the web app and I got an internal server error.
The log indicated we were missing a query_users() method, which appears to
be new in the 2.0 auth modules. It made me what other surprises might be
in store :)
Based on your experiences, I think I'll just script some canned,
interactive session that I can run just to make sure I've exercised the
basic functionality. Something like that would have exposed this problem.
