Hello all,

As discussed at the committer meetings earlier this week, starting next 
week we are going to try out "(In)Sanity Testing Mondays". The community 
is invited to join in.

The goal here is to improve our overall quality substantially with a 
small investment.  The testing is NOT intended to take a day, or even 
half a day - we are targeting 1 hour for testing each week. So clearly 
this won't be a deep-dive into each test that you run, it's more of a 
quick high-level sanity test.  If there is a particular area you are 
concerned with, please feel free to spend more time there and less in 
other areas, but you do need to run each test that is assigned to you.

On Monday morning, in your time zone, ensure that you have the latest 
build and start.  We will be running Ensemble and Modena and other tests 
but anything is fair game.  Committers will have various assignments and 
platforms but these are not set in stone until the end of time.

You don't need to put together any type of formal report, but we 
encourage everyone to be online, reading email and available by IM while 
running the tests to discuss results real time as necessary.  File JIRA 
for any new bugs you find and call it done! Be sure to check the One 
True Dashboard to see of your bug has been found already.


At the next committer meeting and on the list, we'll be discussing how 
things went and how we want to modify and improve the process going 
forward, so be prepared with your feedback.  None of this is set in 
stone, so if it doesn't go well, don't despair - we intend to tweak this 
until it does work well.

Cheers, and happy testing!

Lisa, Kevin and Steve
