Technically speaking, you don't need an account on brutus to run tests. You 
just need to manage to set up a Gump descriptor that runs the tests, and have 
it invoked as a project.

Now, there are a few "buts";
1. The Gump folks won't be too happy if the tests takes hour(s). This could 
perhaps be fixed that the Ant script checks for 'time-of'day' and only run 
parts of the tests each time Gump runs.

2. All the dependencies needs to build before the tests will run. At the 
current rate, Cocoon gets very little chance of executing. We used to be at 
93% overall success rate, now down to 72% due to a minute change in Log4J 
affecting velocity, and to test failures in commons-io.
Personally, I start to doubt the scalability of the current Gump strategy, and 
that we probably will need to allow for failures at the low end without 
stopping the builds at the higher up projects.
