(In)Sanity Testing Mondays

Hi all,

So we tested and found problems.  Let's talk about our findings tomorrow 
and summarize the results to the list.  It's likely faster than back and 
forth email or posts.  I didn't see anyone (in)sane enough in the 
community taking part.  If you tested, you get an opinion on the process.

Committers:  Tomorrow is the last meeting for the year.  We won't meet 
Christmas or New Years Eve.  Even I am not that horrible.

"You can't fool me.  There ain't no Sanity Clause!"
