As it stands now, most testing force goes to the trunk of SVN, which is
The problem is that there are few regression runners running against the
branch, and I think we have a trade off: a regression runner volunteer
will choose
to work on either the trunk or the release branch, but taking care of
both is
possibly too much of a hassle. It is assumed that the release branch is
much cleaner
and thus needs less attention, but it's better to be safe than sorry wrt

My proposal is then: why not modify the regression tool code so that it
operates by
default in *dual mode*, i.e. it automatically downloads two tarballs
(trunk &
release) to different folders, test them separately and upload the
results to the
appropriate destinations? From the point of view of a volunteer, setting
this to work
is as simple as having it running only against one branch, and the only
drawback is
that resource consumption doubles, but this might be acceptable to a fair
number of people.
