Hi Tabitha,

I think Sascha was just asking that we add [Testing] to messages to
sugar-devel. This means that people can opt-out of those messages in the
list's administration setting.

Coordinating tests between OLPC & Sugar Labs is an interesting one. It's
something I've been working on for several months [1]. Perhaps there could
be a BOF session with a few people in San Fran to work out the simplest way
