Suggestion: at the NYC hackathon we went through the P6 core tests,
opening RT requetsts for failing tests and adding the RT bug numbers
to skip's for the failing tests.

Nice thing is that it involves minimal P6 knowedge to trace through
where these fail and does a good job of helping the developers.

If you can get some people willing to blow a few beers fixing test
bugs I can dig up some doc's on how to add the bugs via email and
add the skips.
