I would prefer we do not invest more time in the scripts in the rtems-testing
repo. I personally would like to move this repo to under Joel so it becomes a
personal repo for him and away from the top level because a new user could think
this is the way to test.

Which BSPs that support qemu are missing from the rtems-test tool?

I see 2 parts to the RTEMS Tester work, first the ability to run a specific qemu
for a BSP and the integration of the coverage support. Is this correct?

Where is the repo with the RTEMS Tester you are working on? I saw a post the
other day with some extra output and was wanting to ask.
