Hello Mateusz,

Your proposal seems very interesting.  But given that this is about
testing and NetBSD, have you considered how does your proposal relate
to our testing infrastructure, ATF?  Would be interesting to think
about it and improve the description of your project!

If you have questions about ATF, feel free to ask me off-list.
