And at several points here:
These are integration tests designed specifically to work with Travis-CI and Jenkins and were not meant to test the viability of an installation. A lot of them are unit tests rather than web tests as well, and are not useful to be run on an actual site. In addition, I have a suspicion that people are running these on sites meant to be used for staging or production, which is really dangerous.
We should be pointing people to http://host/admin/islandora/configure to check the connection status. We should also be asking people to test an ingest from the interface themselves rather than running tests, as this familiarizes them with the interface.
The other milestone tests in the documentation seem okay.
