So, I'm ready to work on this, but as underlined by Yifan, it would be 
interesting for us to keep also our Litmus system up to date and 
synchronized because it's used under several OS and languages so it has 
a real interest here.
The ability of syncing the 2 test bases would be really great as it 
would avoid duplicating the work for the maintainers. Anyway, I'm here 
to help, so don't hesitate to tell me what to do :-)
