Hi Olemis,

Thanks for your enthusiasm! It is nothing so formal at this point - just 
we have put together to manage our own group's testing, with the 
intention of releasing
it eventually if it seemed to be generally useful. Sounds like it might 
be - our plans
will probably be influenced by discussions at Pycon this weekend.
