Well, Luke, this is collaborative effort by everybody. By having these CI
systems in place ensures that one person's code does not break other
person's code and vice versa. Therefore, having these CI systems
operational and voting 24x7 is a critical step in achieving this goal.

However, the details as to how and what should be tested is definitely
debatable and the team has done excellent job in converging on that.

Now, as to the issue at hand which Anita is describing, I attended the
meeting this morning and was very pleased with the debate that took place
and the definition as to Sucess
