That's a good idea. So I suggest that you or I create a new virtual server and 
someone creates working TYPO3 installations with all we need.

I think the most important part with this is a thorough knowledge about PHP 
and the extension repository, the unit testing part is not that difficult. If 
I remember right, there was also some tutorial at http://www.phpunit.de/en/

We should discuss all this in a separate thread. I'd also like to use the PHP5 
version of PHPunit, so we'll have to figure out if we want to switch 
TYPO3.org to PHP5.

I imagine that we need someone responsible for each sub site who cares about 
user administration upgrades etc. Also if we have to implement a new 
site-wide design for .org, that person would integrate the new design into 
his sub-site.
