I took a look at this. Thank you much for the offer.

I worry about using dedicated tools/tests for a few developers where we
would need every users to run tests whithout having potential compagny
restrictions in the long term. So, I'm convinced such IDE or continous
integration tool might be a big plus but there are alternatives around
which could better fit users expectations, I guess.
