[Live-demo] Should we write up a Sextante Project Overview on OSGeo-Live

Hi Johan,
I'm not sure how tracking Sextante helped with testing?
Usually testing involves checking an application loads up and more 
detailed testing involves running a quickstart.

I'm wary of putting the onus of testing Sextane on a project without a 
presence on OSGeo-Live.
Why is Sextante getting special testing over any other QGIS plugin?
Probably more applicable would be moving toward writing a test plan for 
each application.
Something like:
* Open OSGeo-Live
* Verify that QGIS starts
* Run some Sextante application in QGIS and verify it works
* ...
(This would be valuable, but I'm not sure we have the time resources to 
implement such a test plan).
