Sounds good.  Is there any way we could run a build bot "slave" (I don't know the BuildBot parlance) here at INL that would report our test status back to your Build Bot server?  If so, we could definitely set that up.

Also, I have some libMesh changes that I'm going to be making today, so I was thinking about my Git workflow a little bit.  I think even _I_ am going to clone the libMesh Git repo on GitHub over into my own workspace and work on my own changes there and then submit a pull request when those changes are ready.  "Submit a pull request" is essentially akin to emailing a patch so others can ok your work.

Now, if I submit a pull request and everyone is ok with it... I can do my own pull into the officially libMesh git clone on my workstation and merge to master and push on my own.  I just like the idea of ok'ing my patches with a pull request first.  For small things, I might not do that (just little bug fixes) but for anything adding or changing API I think it might be a good idea.

Note though, that this is a personal decision that I don't expect everyone to follow.

What do you guys think?
