Here's how I see the priorities for this week. Let's hope we continue to
make the great progress we made last week.

1 Make source for all tests and harness available for download (except
proprietory tests like SPECjbb etc)

of platforms without needing to install anything on the hard disk. Web
form for uploading result data.
