Great stuff Trent! I was wondering how you were doing.

I really appreciate what it takes to put these open resources
together ;) There's a lot of moving parts :)



We now have zone servers in the OpenSolaris test farm, and
I plan to add guest os servers in the next few weeks using
ldoms (sparc) and xvm (x64). The zone servers provide whole
root zones, which should be a good development environment
for most projects. Check it out:


Let me know if there is interest from the python community to
manage one of the test farm servers for python development.
Besides the general use machines, the php community is already
managing a T2000 server.
