That's a good idea, I will use a DVCS to "manager" the updates/new

Right now, I don't have a framework that I am using. This is what I am
looking for.

Site's down, couldn't check it out.

I've done some research and I really like Robotframework due to the
following reasons:

 1. I don't have that many test cases written yet, the keyword driven
 approach for Robotframework allows the other testers to write test
 cases in simple format.

 2. I can focus on writing the specific libraries that provide the
 functionalities for the test cases.

However, I am still looking around to see if there is anything else
that provides similar features as above.
