Author: sgoeschl

New Revision: 731541

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=731541&view=rev
Log:
Adding a FAQ relating to the executable bit of the shell scripts being used for the regression
tests. If the scripts are not executable a lot of the tests ("testExecute*", "testExecuteAsync*")
will fail.
