        system, about half of our existing test cases done now

TOPIC: Update on TCMS nitrate analysis (ticket+ACM-152)
     1. TCMS Use Cases available at
              +ACo Rhe regrouped the use cases by general and main test
                events(runs) use cases. The general cases cover the
                basic uses of wiki, and the events cases covers the
                detailed certain steps for organizing the events.
     2. Wiki and Nitrate comparison available at
              +ACo The comparison is grouped according to the use cases. It
                has overlaps between each other which I need to further
                update. But the basic idea is shown, please review them
                and welcome to provide any comments about the grouping
                idea/design format/contents.

OPEN DISCUSSION: IDEA - Anyone interested in data mining smolt?
     1. In preparation for upcoming Xorg and gnome-shell test days, we
        could really use help massaging smolt data
     2. The goal -- figure out a way to get a raw dump of all graphics
        cards out of smolt, then categorize them into generations, then
        set up queries that abstract out the generations, so we can just
        say ''find all cards in NVIDIA generation foo''
     3. See adamw's blog post at
     4. Next steps ...
              +ACo Searching for a volunteer
