I do.

Before more people start doing this we need some documentation -- how
to write/run their tests. Here is a short Codex article:


The page contains the instructions from Alex's readme and some more
command-line options for wp-test.php. It could have been expanded to
include information about knownWPBug method, _WPMediumBlog class and
its friends, but I didn't have the inspiration to complete it :-)

Great work there! I found some differences between your test results
and these on my computer, but I will contact you with more details
when I investigate the issue.

Happy hacking,
