Nautilus automated test script under Mago applications

As part of an effort to expand Mago a bit by adding nautilus, Jeff Lane from Ubuntu created a launchpad team called mago-applications. It was created to let people interested in adding new applications to Mago collaborate on the same code bases without cluttering up the mago-contributors team.

The way we see it, mago-applications can focus on simply adding new application interfaces and test suites/cases to Mago, while mago-contributors can focus on the core Mago code making sure it works with the latest changes to LDTP and so forth.

So, if you're interested in adding applications to Mago, feel free to join:

Feel free to create your own branches there to add new apps to Mago, there are plenty that can be added to enhance desktop testing of Ubuntu!

Also, adding an application is a good way to get some experience adding to a project that uses Python, is OO based, complex, and useful!
