Paul, outstanding work, I just tried it and it is mighty cool. I can  
see how we gather a significant amount of test-cases using this.

This is not for bug reporting but easy creation, sharing and  
validation of test cases. I believe Paul is working on JIRA  
integration that can be used once a test-case is "validated" by one of  
the developers.

Test-cases are not tied to bugs or issues. If we have a way of easily  
collecting loads of them, way to go! :D

I think the backend is easily portable. For a proof of concept the  
Google AppEngine is not a bad choice. Running this on top of CouchDB  
would be an ideal dogfood thing. I hope we can integrate this with the  
the ASF infrastructure.

Small patches do not have to be vetted. Code that goes into the  
repository will need to be processed by a developer anyway. This is,  
again, just for easily creating test-cases.
