Some of the general points of the chapter are:
Run Visual File Information and VerCheck on each build.
Establish a quality bar that the build will be measured against
Let the test team own the BVTs, but let the build team run them.
Automate BVTs and smoke tests.
Track BVT results on a public intranet page.
Know the difference between BVTs and smoke tests.
Always have the testers or developers run the smoke tests, not the build team.
