Hi Chris - 
talking to Eric after EOFS he mentioned that you were not just interested in automating the existing Lustre tests but also in restructuring how they were designed / set up to make them more reliable, repeatable, and easier to run and automate.  Or, at least that is my desire and I was hoping you had similar thoughts / plans.  
In particular, I'm interested in a few things:
1. Separating out the setup of the filesystem from the execution of the tests.
2. Reducing the ordering dependencies on the tests and clarifying their individual prerequisites and postconditions.  
3. Reorganizing the tests into more logical groupings.
4. Cutting out redundant / ineffective tests.

Are you / WhamCloud pursuing any of this at the moment?
