Yes that would be appropriate.

I'm all thumbs with C++, but I'm capable with actionscript and PHP (which
has ming bindings), so I still mike be able to help.

I am not familiar with dejagnu, as most of my testing experience is with
the DOM interface (windmill and selenium).

I'm emailing back today as I've finally been able to install gnash 0.8.2
in firefox 3 on debian which is my daily setup. I'm compiling the latest
CVS now, and I'll start by trying that out, and reverting back to 0.8.2 if
I can't get it to work. I'll also start reading up in the wiki.

Thanks for the pointers, more are welcome. :-)
