If you provide a link to tarballs, I'll build packages here and test (Slackware).

I believe a set of tarballs is best because then everybody who tests is building from the same source set, rather than trying to patch 3.5.13 sources with patches. If we release as a community then we need to all build from the exact same sources.

We probably should have a punch list of what to test. Nothing extravagant but we need to know which specific bugs have been patched and what kind of test proves functionality. For example, if the kaffeine screen saver patch was backported, then we would need to test that the screen saver is controlled correctly by kaffeine.
