Thanks Chad,

I'd also suggest that now is a good time for us to start being more 
formal about the use of the testing framework.  As we build towards the 
1.0.0 release of Kepler (see 
http://kepler-project.org/Wiki.jsp?page=KeplerReleaseRoadmap) we need to 
  be assured that new additions don't cause regressions in prior 
functionality.  The testing framework can do that for us.  So, please...

1) Fix any broken unit tests that are your responsibility
2) Write unit tests for any new classes you write
3) Deposit workflow tests for any new actors you write
4) Backfill on older classes and actors so that the test suite is more 

If we do this as we go, the testing and verification process will be far 
easier when we try to cut releases.
