Hey Erik,
Can you give a brief overview of what you plan to contribute in terms of 
the test cases. I am not very clear. Are you referring to Apache 
guidelines for testing?

Re: test cases


As you said It might be a good idea to keep samples and policy files based 
test cases in the samples project.

Let me know if this is aligned to the testing guidelines so I go ahead 
with tests changes.

Seconding Craig's advice...
