That's just great ! The more tests we will have, the better. Also if
you get a grip on the code, that means the community is building up :)

You'd better try to work together on NTP to be sure you don't miss
anyting important then. Use the ML for any question, so that everyone
will have the possibility to share your questions and answers.

I don't thing it will take to much of Enrique's time, so he can move
on changePw tests and doco.

The asnwer is yes : we have bundled all the maven project with JUnit4.

It's not a big change, as previous test are still working well, but it
brings some cool new features like annotations. (I know, syntaxic
sugar, but anyway ;)

Add them in trunk, because we need them in trunk, but as we will merge
them with bigbang and the way out, at the end of the day, it makes no

Thanks a lot Stefan !
