Hi Andry,

In terms of man hours,I do think it be worth time to set up a 'quick' wiki
page to give links etc. as to how to do such testing. As the areas I knew
of are out-dated, can you please take some time to make a page up so that
people who want to test can follow how to do this.

Thanks,

Phill.
