There is no way scripts will plug cables and turn on sleeping hardware
unfortunately. I'm already following network updates closely enough to
spot occasional regressions that are naturally expected due to the number
Also, automated tests won't easily report a behaviour analysis, and
behaviour is important in networking. You don't want to accept 100ms
pauses all the time for example (and that's just an example).
Right now my lab is simplified enough so that I can test something like
100 patches in a week-end, I think that's already fine.
