I was hoping to establish some kind of formal process for the testing
my team would be doing. We can just use it and file bugs, if that's
all that's needed.

I'm not sure what the best way to test the trunk would be. Since the
issues that are concerning me at the moment relate to deployment, just
syncing the code and running our app on it probably wouldn't cover
those issues. But I'm also not sure what the best way to get trunk
would be in general.
