Great! This looks very promising.

Will do.

We could generate some documentation in the 5 days. Any specific areas
where we need documentation?

>> * Writing a UI in python for Coverage analysis.

I have a vague idea about this. I am thinking of an app that will
enable one to run all/specific tests from the testsuite. Based on the
arch/bsp of the build it should by itself choose the emulator, run the
tests, generate and spit out coverage reports onto the screen. Does
this seem like a good idea? Does this seem feasible?
