I think we should think on an even bigger scale.

What I would like to see is that lab configurations, board
configurations and test cases can be made publicly available.

I mean, if you have already created a lab config for pollux, why
should I have to do this again?  And no, I would not even want to
copy it.  I'd much rather be able to use a configuration which is
"just there".

And if Heiko has a board config for the BBB, I want to use it as

In the end I want to be able to run a Anatolij's test case with
Heiko's board config and your lab config.

Without copying around files.

Randal said it would be tough to do in sed. He didn't say  he  didn't
understand  sed.  Randal  understands sed quite well. Which is why he
uses Perl. :-)         - Larry Wall in <7874 at jpl-devvax.JPL.NASA.GOV>
