River has a normal build, and a QA framework. This QA is a lengthy 
process taking more than 22 hours, where the river networking 
environment is tested. Whe have to wait for a long time to see the 
failure results of our changes. The categories bundle the single tests 
together in order to test 1 specific aspect of river. We currently have 
1496 test setups in 66 categories. Whe have noticed that the different 
machines produce different failures. The purpose of the matrix project 
type fits this setup perfectly. Well, of course except for potential 
scalability problems. :-)
