Why so low? I'm pretty optimistic. ;)

The problem with running the tests locally is that our dataset is pretty large and the types of QA tests that it needs are pretty expensive. Given these constraints, it makes more sense to do the tests on a dedicated server than to do it on a client which may have limited resources. - -- Thanks, Zac -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkkgYPMACgkQ/ejvha5XGaONpQCeJRZY1JHxreTbvQpi8R9PIlDh 6EYAoKEbAfmp5r5XplG1JhU+zMMK+jyp =R44q -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
