Looks pretty interesting. I have few questions: 

Is is supposed for testing of the openSUSE LO packages or the plain LO
Is the testing automatic or manual?

I wonder how to synchronize it with the other testing effort. Note that
test cases and test runs for the plain build are organized via Litmus,
see http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA#Function_test .  Test cases
for the openSUSE LO packages are in Testopia that is part of
https://bugzilla.novell.com. I am not sure if people outside SUSE have
access to it, though.

Also I wonder where to report bugs. I would prefer
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/ if the bugs are in the plain build as

One possibility would be to use night builds from the plain build.
Alternatively, I could try to produce nightly builds in BS. I already
have many useful scripts at hands.
