Maho was providing a compressed testautomation directory on the good-day 
servers. At the moment, Maho search a new server, because the good-day 
is no longer aviable for Anyway, to get the 
testautomation directory was never realy the key problem. 
"testautomation" is still in the source, and everyone can checkout it.

The problem is more, that the TT never run in a productive mode outside 
SUN/Oracle. Yes, same people like me experiment with the TT, but in fact 
the TT was not used by the Community at all. I see different reasons, 
why TT was never used outside SUN/Oracle
1) TT is complicate to use
2) SUN did this job, and there was no reason to do the same job again
3) SUN used tools who are not aviable for the Community (Testlauncher 
for exemple)

So TT was in fact a more or less SUN internal tool. At SUN it was easy 
(as I heared) to use the TT. This tests was hevy automated. SUN has 
special VM's only dedicated for this tests. But we have no more access 
to this infrastructure. The only thing we have is the TT and the 
testscripts. If we will use TT then we have a load to rework.

Byside, we have not many people with TT experience. You can maybe help here.
