The problem is I'm not sure what a proper test environment really
would mean or looks like. All I know is this article by Nigel Daley
who also setup the current tests with Hudson.


Maybe we don't have to go that far, but as I understood the current
tests are only a subset to keep the test time to a reasonable minimum
and that for the AR1 release Sun did the additional testing. I think
this is really somebody more qualified than I am should answer.
Nevertheless it would be great if you could help a hand, the same
applies BTW to Dennis Reedy. Still have to answer his questions ...
