Note(s) from the Maintainer:
Continuing with our effort for testing new areas, we saw major contributions in terms of new tests this month. I am hoping that this trend will be carried forward in the coming quarters as well.

Michal Simek´s effort to cleanup LTP coding style and provide fixes for them is a good move. I am sure that he will complete that in coming months.

Our web site also contains other information such as:
- A Linux test tools matrix
- Technical papers
- How To's on Linux testing
- Code coverage analysis tool.

We would encourage the community to post results to,
patches, new tests, bugs or comments/questions to, (for New Bug(s)), (for New Patch(s)), (for New Feature Request(s))

Happy testing,
