I think it's also a good way to use some testing dedicated machines
rather than buildbot slavers. We can cover more OSs. If we use
buildbot slavers, we only cover 4 OSs.
With tests become more and more, if we include all tests in buildbot,
the build period will become very long.
Of course, it's more convenient to perform tests with buildbot. I
think we can includes part of tests. e.g. build verification test.
Are these buildbot slavers enabled graphics interface? Some tests need
access to graphics interface.

Currently, we have about 300 automated test cases in our test project,
including GUI test, UNO API test, Functional test, Performance test.
We plan to execute them step by step.
