Is there someplace I could read up on what we would need for a proper
test env? Is it along the lines of just running all the existing tests
under various OS's? (more than what Hudson is doing now?)

I'm currently running automated builds for some other OSS projects on
Win2k, WinXP, Ubuntu 8.04 [all i386 for now], though might be able to
add amd64 if needed.

(Unfortunately, my OpenSolaris i386 toasted itself a few too many times
when it locked and zfs went bye, bye after reboot - [note: this is not a
slam on zfs, the hardware involved was prehistoric] - I will try it
again after the next release. Of course if some sparc hardware fell out
the sky, I'd certainly add it to my basement build farm).

Maybe I've found something I could finally help with? ;)
