Hi Guys,

Jim approached me yesterday at the convention about tinderbox and other
testing that OSDL might be able to help with.  (By the way, I loved all
the X talks - they were the most interesting part of the show!)

I know Cliff White was working on setting up Tinderbox for X here at
OSDL earlier.  I'll check with him about it tomorrow - what is left to
be done on it?

As far as other testing, we've got some automated systems set up to run
regression and performance tests for the kernel and postgres.  If
someone would like to work on this, we can expand the framework to
include running X tests.  If this is something that X needs, I think
it'd be cool to get set up.  :-)
