For the next phase of VICI's development I am thinking of setting up a
test lab.
Using virtual machines I will test against Scientific Linux (proxy for
RHEL), Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, Suse, Slackware, Arch, Manjaro and

On each of these I will need to try the available desktop environments:
Unity (?), Gnome, Cinnamon, KDE, Enlightenment, XFCE, Mate, LXDE/LXQt

There is also the problem of Xorg and Wayland.

Fortunately VICI can be tested automatically including GUI operations.
