As far as I'm concerned Boost would be more than happy to use your
tools if it will save us labor. With no other immediate prospects for
improving things, we're going to try to launch a project to re-do the
reporting system as a Trac plugin, with something like an XML-RPC
frontend that will accept results from the testing servers. If you
are offering to set up a Zutubi system that tests Boost, and it can do
the things we need in terms of reporting (like handle test markup), we
could delay that project and give you a chance to get something
going. Do you think that would save us labor in the long run?
