Some of the scripts are in contrib/regression already, at least the build
scripts are.

What's missing (in addition to idiotproof instructions, although the script
is well-commented) are the scripts that parse apart the ChangeLog to see
who changed what, and send the email.

I already have an autocrasher that mails to the testsuite list.  What I
don't have are (a) the email nagging scripts for the regression list
(and developers), and (b) enough spare cycles to run it continually.


I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
