Yes, it helps and I've seen these steps several times before too :)
The general steps can be used for setting up an environment, but ideally
the tests do not run in manually created containers as that is
(hopefully!) not what users do either. Testing the RPMs should be done
on systems that mimic real world deployments as close as possible.

The main thing that I would like to see included in the test is a script
that takes care of

    *** run some creates and tests as needed!

We do have a few automated container builds as well. Users that need
containers are expected to use those. I do not think we have any
automated (or manual) testing in place for these though :-/
