Automated functionality testing helps catch bugs earlier (giving better feedback to developers) and reduces load on testers.
Adding regression tests for bugs resolved during the 0.86 development phase would be a useful starting point.
Writing tests is tedious work nobody wants to do, so it's not realistic to expect someone to come up with a set of tests for all components. Rather the load should be spread - that's why I'm proposing to add regression tests for newly fixed bugs, as that can be done by those fixing the bugs.
A test suite will need to be added and that's what this bug is actually about (everything else are process decisions and probably do not belong in the bug tracker). :)
