Hello gang,

with this mail, I want to encourage that we reduce the private 
development in private build systems, and start using the Haiku 
repository more. For me as a newbie to app_server development, it is 
quite irritating. I would really like whatever test applications you 
guys are using, to be checked into src/tests/servers/app/, I have put 
the "painter" test there already. Up until now, I actually never 
succeeded running the Haiku app_server, let alone running a test 
BApplication that uses it. I'm just trying to say that it would 
encourage digging into app_server development more, if there was 
already a clean way to test it or to start writing own tests from. With 
the recent achievements of Michael Lotz, I think there is the potential 
of gaining some momentum, and maybe we can even show something at 
BeGeistert. DarkWyrm has posted BeIDE project files at one time, but 
when I build app_server this way, I didn't get very far, because the 
executable was crashing right after launch. When I recently tried it 
again, the build system seemed to be broken somehow, I didn't have time 
to investigate more. Anyway, if you are interested in help, I would 
suggest you make it as easy for people to get up to speed with the 
current state of development as possible, and from my own experience 
with "digging in", I would welcome it, if there would be test 
applications in the Haiku tree. I mean, so that what gets build by the 
jam system is actually the real thing, with everything it needs to run 
for testing it. What do you think?

Best regards,
