Have a bit of patience.

Abe and I managed to get to a point where we can smoke *ANY* git
snapshot (a commit sha1).

Abe is now almost done with allowing to smoke from local git clones.
Work still includes finding the best way. Three options still open.
Expect news soon.

Other work we did - thanks to the great QA-hackathon - is make a start
to be able to send Test::Smoke results to the Metabase infrastructure
used by CPANTESTERS. This is quite a bit more complicated and is by no
way finished yet, but the plans are. There are big advantages in using
Metabase over e-mail, but it still got a few hurdles to take.

I'll keep you all posted here.
