> Subject: [Announce] Linux Test Project
> SGI would like to announce the Linux Test Project.  The goal of this
> project is to create a formalized test system for the Linux kernel.
> We have released a set of 96 tests on the project's website
> (http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ltp/).  These tests exercise file systems
> and system calls and can be used for stress testing or sanity tests.
> We would like to discuss the following topics with the community.
>  - The testing philosophy that is most important to the kernel
>    developers.  What approach best fits the development process?
>    Regression?  Functional?  Stress?  Performance?
>  - What is needed immediately?  Building a test suite for the kernel is
>    going to take time.  What tests or tools are most important?
>  - We need to plan a development road map that works with the Linux
>    kernel development road map.
> We are hoping to hold an unscheduled BOF at LinuxWorld on Wednesday.
> Aaron Laffin and Richard Logan will be there to discuss these issues.
> If you are interested in testing and are attending LinuxWorld, please
> keep an eye open for our BOF.
