Care to post some instructions for people - say on the wiki for now,  
and we'll move to our site?

Thanks for the reminder.  I didn't get those done when getting JDWP  
into the jdktools.  If you don't beat me to it, I'll get them  

And I agree, we need to get the tests integrated into the regular  
process.  Also, we should also start testing the other tools as  
well.  (Make sure javac does something useful, etc...)

Remember, changes to the testing infrastructure can be additive -  
IOW, add a target for CC that does the JDK tools testing, using the  
full JDK build, rather than changing it to be "instead of".

Again, any simple how-tos on this would be magnificent...
