Re: [AMBER-Developers] writers of parallel tests

I am still willing to document the parallel tests, but as mentioned earlier I can't promise anything significant to anyone until the end of March, and documenting this aspect of the tests properly is looking non-trivial. I don't even require 0x$ for it and will endeavor to avoid overfull badness (hbox or vbox).
