[QA] VisualEditor preferences test environment policy

Just a quick note,

I would like to reserve test2wiki (http://test2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page)
for VisualEditor testing, and keep the old editor in place at enwiki (
http://en.wikipedia.org) and beta labs (http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org

Our only test user so far is named "Selenium_user" (or "Selenium user").  I
have changed the preferences for Selenium_user such that VisualEditor is
only enabled on test2wiki.

We have a number of tests (Page, Math, etc.) that rely on the existing
editor, that break when VE is enabled.  Eventually when VE becomes the
default editor we will refactor these tests to use VE (hi Rachel!), but
until then any non-VE test that involves editing a page should be run on
beta and/or prod and not on test2.  Likewise, if you happen to know the
password for Selenium_user, please don't enable VE on enwiki or beta labs.
