The Linux Test Project would like to help out here.  At the least, we
would like to add the scripts, wrappers, and configuration files used to
create the test systems to LTP.  Making test systems available is
definitely a great step forward.  Showing people how to build similar
test systems is another step forward.  

Let us know what parts you need and we'll see what we can come up with.

If anyone has loose programs that they use to test the scheduler, please
submit them to the Linux Test Project.  Chances are other people will
also find them useful and add functionality.  It doesn't have to be a
formal test program or use the test libraries that we use.  We can take
care of that when we add it to the CVS tree.

While we probably aren't going to package up full applications for
testing purposes, we could definitely keep track of useful configuration
files and scripts that people find useful for testing.
