Whiteboard

Meta:
Headline: A new LAVA test suite helper tool was released. This tool handles the interaction with the LAVA server and creating LAVA job files and test definition files, so that test suite developers and integrators can concentrate on the actual test cases.
Acceptance: the tool is available for installation by test suite developers
Roadmap Id: CARD-365

[asac, 24-04-2013]: thanks for the much better headline. Please remember to regularly add status updates to high importance blueprints that see no movement. Please give a status update now; in future ask for a decision on priority earlier and ensure that that decision (that we might have done in this case) gets documented in the whiteboard
