Note(s) from the Maintainer:
==============================
Manas completed porting the remaining tests from Crackerjack to LTP. Due to inherent design issues in the existing tests, we found major build issues on varied archs/distors. Jiri/Naresh chipped in to solve majority of them. I hope all such issues has been fixed by now.

There is always a price to be paid for newer test cases. And the price for fixing them is definitely lesser provided the benefits the new test cases bring in. Some of you are very skeptical and wants every release of LTP to be very stable. Let me point that even there are situations when the Linux kernel itself breaks to build on certain situations. And trying to build LTP on multiple platforms and distros is a much bigger challenge. Stability takes some time to arrive.

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)),

Happy testing,
