New Updater Program Needs Testers

Michael Vogt has put in a call for testing for the new upgrade tool for Ubuntu. The general idea is that when a new version of Ubuntu is released, that there should be an easy way to upgrade without manually editing text files. Ruben Vermeersch asked if this tool would be pushed to breezy so that existing users will be able to upgrade to Dapper when it is released; to which Michael replies:

Yes, we plan to make it available in breezy-updates for a breezy->dapper upgrade.

So if you're planning on upgrading to Dapper during the development cycle, this is a good way to help test a feature that will no doubt make upgrading to the new hotness very easy. Michael has also posted screenshots.
