      • Issues with testing connection with remote servers; Passwords are stored in a sample config file, real ones are not committed; could it run on Hudson build server @eclipse.org?
      • Jay will look into NCSA machine and security issues for testing
      • Roland will look into how eGit does testing. Could we test remote to localhost?
