Heh, I often like to write docs actually. Just the other day
somebody told me "I prefer to read code rather than docs" when
i pointed him to detailed docs i spent considerable time with :)

ok. I just reread your mail from April to TIP:
Pandokia is designed as a lightweight test
management and reporting system.
It consists of loosely coupled set of components that:
- discover test files
- configure the test environment
- invoke test runners to run tests contained in test files
- import test results to a database
- identify missing test results
- display browsable (CGI) test reports from the database
where is nose and the nose-plugin coming into play?
