Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Bigtop for the Apache Incubator
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2011 23:57:19 GMT

Looking through the proposal with a bit more attention I've noticed
that initial source code linked in here
refers to iTest framework as the foundation of BigTop testing.

However, iTest repository at isn't
available? Will it be available along with the rest of the code or it
isn't opened to the public? What's the deal there? I believe it'd be
beneficial for the community to be able to see the source code of the
testing engine. Please correct me if I'm wrong though ;)
