The next steps in this team are:
We have Travis complaining about this:
E.................E......... I'm sorry but your test run exceeded 50.0 minutes. One possible solution is to split up your test run.
We need to find a solution, for example: http://blog.travis-ci.com/2012-11-28-speeding-up-your-tests-by-parallelizing-them/
The goal of this project is to test com_localise extension https://github.com/joomla-projects/com_localise/ to create a proof of concept and documentation to teach others how to test their Joomla Extensions.
After com_localise our efforts will be moved to com_weblinks https://github.com/joomla-extensions/weblinks/issues/10
We plan to run create a battery of webservers able to run several instances of the system tests with different configuration: browser, screen size, testing area...
The idea is to create a server infraestructure capable to create a set of virtual machines and run individually part of the system testing suite on each of them. Then send a signal back to issues.joomla.org to change the status of a pull request to OK or KO depending on the result of running the tests.
