Basically we need to integrate (or something like it):
and we need to make the tests to pass or mark them as insignificant (I
already have a patch for this).
We have some other options (to start with, improving over time):
- No CI et al, direct submit  => now
- CI with some platforms (linux, windows, mac) enforcing compilation
only => a week ?
- CI with some platforms (linux, windows, mac) enforcing compilation and
autotests = couple of weeks ?
- CI with the current platforms in enforcing mode (macosx 10.6, macosx
10.7, winxp msvc2008, win7 msvc2008, win7 msvc2010, linux g++, linux
icc) => months ?
: those who agree then will have to step up and fix the failures when
the CI comes back online :)
