I think it would be easy to start the torrent at the start of the manual testing session, and check if its finished after the other tests have finished.

I used to add the torrents to my seedbox while testing, but I haven't done it consistently the last year (as I didn't found any problems in a long time, being only useful a couple of times when the RM already had doubts about the torrent working).

This would also give one more seeder to spread the torrents when we actually release.
