A happy Tinderbox run

OLPC-Tinderbox is a test runner and test result reporting tool. It takes in builds, runs test modules on them, and reports its results (example).

It produces both synthetic measurements on software-only platforms like jhbuild, performance results on actual OLPC hardware, and high-resolution power measurements on specially instrumented hardware.

It is comparable to buildbots such as Titus' olpc buildbot or sugarbot. (If you prefer other test running systems, that's fine too. We can use all the help we can get.)

Tinderbox is developed by Chris Ball and is being documented by Michael Stone. Patches welcome - please help us Light the Tinderbox.
