We should probably place something on the wiki to prevent overlaps  
(i.e. make sure no two devs are working on the same tests).  I  
planned on working on the G's last night but got bogged down.

Spiros, if you haven't already go ahead and create a list on a wiki  
page for tracking.  We can lay claim to them by tagging with our sigs  
and cross them off once complete.
