KVM autotest is the set of kvm tests implemented on top of the [http://autotest.github.com/ autotest] framework. The current documentation can be seen on the [https://github.com/autotest/autotest/wiki/KVMAutotest autotest wiki], please refer to it. We'll port the remaining items to the autotest issue tracker.
