Subject Re: [discussion] How do we get help with testing?
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2005 16:40:33 GMT
This is a great idea.  Running the TCK is a huge pain for us and we  
have a very small matrix right now (2 version of geronimo * 1  
platform * 1 Java VM).

I was chatting with David Blevins about this yesterday, and he  
suggested that we make this a full subproject.  The subproject could  
mange TCK and integration testing, hourly builds, nightly releases,  
daily performance tests with trade and spec and so on.  We could  
create the supproject using the TCK build tree, the scripts tree, and  
itests modules.

What do you think?
