The four big things to check are:
* Does the website work reliably? Can you log in, browse translations,
and switch between projects?
* Can you modify a translation and have that change reflected if you
close the browser and then log back in and check?
* Can you download translations from the -dev server[1]?
* Can you push new source files from a project to the -dev server[1]?

[1]: I've forgotten some of the details, but there's a tool in
project-config under jenkins/scripts called create-zanata-xml.py that
create a suitable XML file[2] so you can use the Zanata CLI to test
those two parts.
[2]: With the correct options of course, which are used in
upstream_translation_update.sh and friends in the same directory in
