> 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.
