No. I'm afraid not. But we are still willing to help out.

There is this little catch around test infrastructure support. We're 
just a tad reluctant to commit things we cannot fully test on a regular 
basis. However, if the community (that is officially you now ;) provides 
some support in keeping the odd bits in shape, we will certainly accept 
patches and try to help out as best we can.
