I like the idea of having a common location to post results.  If anything it
would make it easier to submit bug reports if a link to the fully gory
details of the test cases were included in the email, and if that URL was an
OSDL URL then I believe this would help build a unified voice behind CGL.

If the test is run via STP, then the tester gets the publicly available
results URL, but does OSDL have a mechanism for uploading results from test
not run in the OSDL lab?
