Well, it was in the PERFORCE change 68915 thread, where I said I'd been
doing all the grimoire updates manually but was asking you or Seth to take
over getting them updated and going normally, and you asked for the
details, and I sent them. I meant all the grimoires, since that's what I'm
currently doing manually. Sorry if it wasn't clear. (And we need those
mails moved to a commits ML... *poke Eric*)
I definitely agree we want the test tarballs automated. I thought the
discussions on IRC* were still around getting them automated from a
developer machine and (eventually) using developer-specific keys. We have
to recreate the scripts anyway, switching the way it's done won't really be
difficult. We just can't switch the keys used til people have sufficient
time to get the new keys into sorcery-pubkeys.
Regardless, test is *not automated* right now. None of the grimoires are.
I'll get my own process automated if I get a chance but I'd really rather
you or Seth take that all over and get it going.

accessible format, but the server stuff is taking priority until it's
