Good news indeed,
when we are confident that this all works in a few different set-ups, we should create a set of docs pointing to the test system on the wiki. I guess the other bit which in the longer run would be useful, would be a quick guide that describes how to add tests.
Best Regards

That is really great news! :-)

If you would like to have a go:
 - You will need local DHCP and TFTP servers, ideally on the
   same machine
 - You will probably need a dedicated test box.  The test system
   likes to reinstall although it is now possible to avoid this
 - git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/osstest.git
 - cd osstest
 - git checkout standalone
 - less README

And follow the instructions.  The README is also here:

Cool. I'm definitely giving it a try (probably next week).

The instructions are still sketchy and I'm sure there are many hurdles
and wrinkles.  So as I say this is for the brave only.  But if one or
two people (Ian C has expressed an interest) would like to try it that
would be helpful.

Although I have very few perl, I'll do my best to be useful too.

I have tested, more or less recently, installing a host, running a
complete job (including a build and a test job).

Thanks a lot for doing this... I'll finally be able to get rid of my
wonky bash scripts to achieve basically the same and start building on
top and, hopefully, contributing to something more serious, structured
and really useful to everyone! :-)
