I planned on writing actual usage documentation for the tinderbox this
past week but between a flue and a cold I'm in a bit of a pinch with
stuff. So I'll summarise here what you'd have to look at as it is.

The code to run the tinderbox is mostly self-contained in the git
repository at

http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=proj/flameeyes-tinderbox.git;a=summary

it doesn't require much in term of software; you can easily run it on
either KVM (but I found the I/O hit too big on my system) or within an
LXC instance. A non-namespaced chroot will likely cause you trouble.

You can use a network-isolated instance by providing it with a proxy to
use, otherwise it'll access network normally (some tests might make use
of network connectivity, and not all of it is SFW).

Just run ./tinderbox-continuous.sh and it should take care of everything
alone, if you still have any doubts please feel free to ask so that I
know what to document exactly.
