Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Establishing a contrib repo for upgrade testing
Date Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:55:30 GMT
I've seen some of the problems this has found, and I'm all for it!

Are there opportunities to share this project with other projects? Would
this be something that starts out as a contrib and then graduates to top
level project over time?
