some work has been started to implement the strategy described in the 
summary to improve our testing infrastructure and consolidate it using 
buildbot for all our testing needs.

The experimental buildbot master setup we are playing with lives in:


this setup is going to be used for a  buildmaster running on wyvern.

As described in the summary the main idea is to use the new event model 
on py.lib trunk to produce structured logfiles that can be used from the 
buildbot master to produce consolidated test result pages. Code doing 
that lives at:

- http://codespeak.net/svn/py/trunk/contrib/filelog/

The integration between pypy and py.lib trunk py.test has been worked on in:

-  http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/branch/pypy-pytrunk/ (this points 
through an external to the filelog code for it to be readily available)

so far only the major issues have been tackled and we are still using 
the compatibility layer
present in the py.test, medium term we want to switch away from using 
the deprecated

On the buildbot side:

- there's the start of a status page that looks like the current one we 
use (the htmlconftest based one) but can merge results coming from 
multiple builders

- and definitions of simple builds to run some of pypy own tests

I have checked in a TODO file with what is likely needed for people 
interested in helping or following what is going on:
