If you'd like automated browser-based functional/regression testing of FUDforum (the software), you may be interested in SeLite. It extends Selenium IDE. It allows your tests to access (read and write to) a test DB (isolated from the DB of the tested application). It's open source.

It could work very well for you, especially since FUDforum can have its data in an SQLite DB. Since SeLite uses a (separate) SQLite DB for test data, your test data lifecycle would be very easy. However, you can benefit from SeLite even if your test instance of FUDforum uses other type of DB.

Creating tests in Selenium IDE is convenient and highly productive. It doesn't require low-level programming skills, so even users/designers could contribute new tests. Tests can be maintained in SVN. See selite.googlecode.com.

I could create a test framework and provide some examples. Would there be any interest on side of FUDforum developers?

I think we should definately explore it.
Will appreciate if you can setup a test framework with some examples.

The initial FUDforum test framework is at https://code.google.com/p/selite/wiki/FUDforumFramework. It comes with a simple test demo, which creates a random user and then logs as her/him. It also logs in and out as an admin (or any role that you define for the purpose of testing). Use it (at least for now) with SQLite-based installation of FUDforum.

If you haven't used Selenium IDE before, look at http://docs.seleniumhq.org/docs/02_selenium_ide.jsp.
