Hey Edison,

Nice job!  Speeding up the simulator is an important step :-)

We should probably try to get the new setup working with Travis so we can run it on every
commit. I don;t think we nee gerrit yet (who other discussion) but if we get this testing
every github pull request and every newly created hotfix/bugfix/feature branch we have the
same effect right.

about how to add gerrit into our system.
