I started with a small list that I know can be supported because I've
personally got easy access to the systems involved. As I said in other
posts, I'm willing to add a few more. But I'm concerned about systems
with only one tester. In those cases I'd like someone to step forward
(as you seem to be doing) and volunteer to ensure tests run regularly.
Can you test on both trunk and release branch? Or do you know someone
who can test the release branch? Incremental tests are OK.
