Fine, I can download and retest the new ISOs tomorrow.
The ISO QA tracker is only used to test milestoned isos (we're currently
preparing the final isos for 8.10). I'd suggest to subscribe to the ESX
test case in the tracker so that you'll be notified about new builds

LAMP, dns and other tasks are already covered by other test cases. This
test case is targeted at making sure that Ubuntu can be installed in an
ESX environment (ie that the kernel is able to boot and the necessary
drivers are available in the -virtual kernel flavor).

Agreed. The reason why the description may be thin is that the lack of
access to an ESXi environment means that the available options are
unknown. It seems that there are multiple choices when creating a guest
environment in ESXi (such as device drivers, etc...). Updating the test
case or creating other test cases is very welcomed - it's a wiki page.

As mentioned above, subscribing to test cases on the ISO QA tracker and
hanging in the #ubuntu-testing IRC channel will keep you in the loop
wrt to ISO testing requests.
