It will go in the mustella folder in the trunk, but I still don't think we
should add it to the source distributions.  Those who wish to use mustella
to test can certainly download it from SVN and use it.  I don't think
everybody getting the release needs to run mustella and those who do would
probably find it faster to refresh SVN.

For sure.  We expect all of you to run as many non-mustella tests as you can
against the release candidates and then vote.  IMO, we should not hold up
the parity release to wait for Mustella to be donated.  I think we're almost
ready to have everyone pound on a release candidate, but I think the
approval process for Mustella could take until mid-July.

No, we can't make it public without essentially going through the process we
are going through right now.

Yes, we will be donating it with broken tests.  We are simply finishing up
an legal scrub that was just awful and fixing enough tests to rid the
baseline media of unallowed media.  Then we have to get legal to review our
work and the VP to sign.
