As we are closing in on our alpha4 release, we plan to use the next
few weeks on improving the Functional Test framework. We plan to meet
tomorrow at 3 pm to discuss what concrete steps we need to take in
that direction for both development and QA.
If you have any ideas or input feel free to attend. We will have the
bridge for the remote people to dial in.
Mikeal will reserve a conference room and let everyone know.
