the Association is a minor part of whats needed. anyway, we have a 
volunteer to host the infrastructure. see http://groups.drupal.org/node/2286

we need people to work on simpletest module and simpletest tests. they 
need to be upgraded now for D6, for example. please post in the unit 
test group if interested - http://groups.drupal.org/unit-testing
