This checklist is to track testing tasks that need to be executed prior to a release. These tests are manual processes (currently) that test the release candidate "package".
Download mifos zip package from Hudson. See below for testing on Sourceforge.
Inspect contents of zip package.

Sub directories - config and sql
Files INSTALL, install-ubuntu.sh, LICENSE, and mifos.war
View INSTALL file, use directions for installation and test each link mentioned in INSTALL file
In config dir, applicationConfiguration.custom.properties and local.properties
Confirm custom properties contain any new properties for this release
In config dir, view local.properties file
Test deployment configurations
Deploy Mifos with FR locale and check all strings are translated.

Test download of Sourceforge package
