There are some test tools which runs from disk, but you can test the system a lot more thoroughly when it is running from ROM, and it will also run even if you have errors in chip mem.

It seemed mostly finished already, so I think it is still happening. C64 Reloaded MkII was just released so perhaps the A1200 Reloaded is next in line.
