In(Sanity) Testing Mondays

Hi all,

Steve and I have update the test matrix for the coming weeks.  Due to US 
holidays, this matrix will stay in place until next year.  For the 
desktop team, we aimed to have two people cover each part of ensemble on 
various platforms, for embedded (since we have fewer people), one person 
testing each part of ensemble.  For both teams we had toys-subset and 
toys-controls (the two main groups of tests) tested by 2 people each.

Vacations are not taken into account, so it's possible some test 
coverage will be missed each week but the overall coverage should be 
reasonable, especially given the slower rate of change that's likely due 
to the holidays.
