Perhaps it's also time to consider providing restraint in the Beaker
harness repos by default?
Bill also recently got it to the point of supporting multihost testing
(by way of integrating it with the relevant parts of STAF), so it's
becoming a viable replacement for beah for many more cases that don't
require beah's backwards compatibility with the legacy RHTS features.
Making restraint more readily accessible will also make things easier
for folks that want to test tasks directly from git, as well as write
their tests using autotest.
I agree. I did start discussing adding restraint to our harness repos with
Dan.. can't recall the outcome.
