Note(s) from the Maintainer:
==============================
Garrett continued his surge towards making the Makefiles look more elegant. Hope we should be able to push them to the main tree in August or September 09 release. So far he has worked on more than 600+ Makefiles.

LTP received renewed attention through the Paper(http://ltp.sourceforge.net/documentation/technical_papers/Putting_LTP_to_Test.pdf) and Tutorial at OLS 2009. New testcases poured in this month as well, and, i am hoping that people will open up more and contribute more in terms of new test cases.

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
ltp-results@lists.sf.net,
patches, new tests, bugs or comments/questions to ltp-list@lists.sf.net,
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=add&group_id=3382&atid=103382 (for
New Bug(s)),
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=add&group_id=3382&atid=303382 (for

Happy testing,
