Subject Re: Unit/Stress Tests

Before we jump off the cliff here, just how long do the stress tests 
currently take?  I don't think it is a significant fraction of the 
build time.  I recall trying this idea of isolating stress tests in 
jboss builds and it turned into a real mess.  Noone likes maintaining 
the test system, lets keep it as simple as possible.  I think setting 
up damage control would be more useful.

Also I have set up all the projects we are collectively involved in in 
a single build environment
(tranql, howl, geronimo, openejb, activemq).  I suggest we set up 
something like this to be run by dc.
