I have created a Media Support Squad feature module that enables all needed modules, plus Admin menu, to quickly be able to start testing for example patches.
As an added bonus it comes with Text formats and WYSIWYG profiles for both CKEditor and TinyMCE so you easily can test that too.
You can download or clone it from http://drupal.org/sandbox/tsvenson/1428994. The project page contains instructions on how to install and enable it.
If your quick, you should have a new Media enabled site up in just a few minutes, ready for testing patches and other things.
Would love some feedback on what you think of it.
PS: this one is for Media 1.x, I am working on making another feature for the 2.x branch as well.
