Topics:
 - Go over the current test cases and show what is currently tested
 - How to hook Offspring builds into LAVA as soon they are completed?
 - Supporting different test bundles across images and platforms
 - Extending test support:
   - Hardware support, such as wifi, bluetooth, sound
   - Regression/smoke test for LEB images

Current tests for images:
Stream
smem
pybench
pwrmgmt
posixtestsuite
bootchart
x11perf(*)
gtkperf(*)
gmpbench(*)
glmemperf(*)
    (*) Only run in gui things

Future ideas:
ltp-ddt and other member tests
kernel acceptance test suite
gwg has additional tests we are pulling in
ACTION: Avik Sil to propose for merging

gl tests can be eliminated for boards that don't have driver support
 - but we would rather run the test than not run something we should be
 - tests could be modified to check if supported feature is enabled, and skip if it is not

linaro-leb test project - test suite for sanity/regression testing the linaro images, run daily. it could be acceptance tests?

- Image/Test combinations
ACTION: paul to disable natty related images at LAVA -> DONE

- How to hook Offspring builds into LAVA as soon they are completed?
   - LOW: Offspring should avoid building hwpacks/images if nothing changed at the repository/PPAs
   - HIGH: hook offspring with LAVA by changing offspring to send events/submit job to LAVA. It should be done after the sync to snapshots.linaro.org (can be a hook at the cron sync job that already happens with snapshots/offspring)
ACTION: fabo to talk with Infra/Offspring devs to know which changes are needed and when it can be deployed. Create a blueprint for this work.
   - replace the current validation interface to have the combination list/test results
   - the cron job that sends the job requests to lava can get the build id numbers and create something useful at snapshots.linaro.org that will link to the test results

 - Supporting different test bundles across images and platforms
 Need to make sure that lava doesn't get notified to do the test until after offspring has fully copied the file across

 - Extending test support:
   - Hardware support, such as wifi, bluetooth, sound
     We can start with wifi AP
     ACTION: fabo to get some tests
   - Regression/smoke test for LEB images
- Scheduler will support tag (capabilities) to enable testing on a specific hw combination (like boards with usb storage, disks, etc)
