Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday and helped hack! We discovered 
some bugs, fixed some issues, made a proper production branch for the 
autopilot tests and started on the conversion to autopilot 1.3 for our 
testcases. We started a pad to track the work, and you can view it here:


On the manual side, Javier has opened bugs for the default applications 
-- feel free to grab a bug and submit a testcase for it :-)

For those in the US, have a great long weekend!
