test cases should be separated into UI tests and into functional tests 
because UI test cases are needed to have some kind of get well plan (or 
release test) for localized releases and functional tests to go into the 
deep functionality of newly implemented features and to assure the 
quality of new code commits to existent functionality. In the past 
localized builds were mostly released by their respective 
native language teams after the "un-localized" en-US build has been 
released after finishing the functional QA.
Localization tests for releases are important to assure that localized 
builds do not crash what may happen in case resource files have build 
errors like to have a turned bit in a resource file - an error that 
cannot be found in an functional test that is mostly done within an 
en-US build.


In the past had a lot more platform builds released like

Linux_HPPA (deb)
Linux_IA64 (rpm)
Linux_PPC (rpm)
Linux_S390X (rpm)
MacOS_PPC (dmg)
Solaris_Sparc (pkg)
Solaris_x86 (pkg)

Kind regards, Joost
