As part of Wipro would like to contribute to the existing LTP. Pl
suggest the person to contact and any technical area that we need to
focus. Would appreciate your quick response.

Here is as good a place as any. Is there any shortage of things that
people out there would like to see changed/improved in LTP? Feel free
to speak up.
Balaji, do you have any particular areas of interest?

As far as NPTL is concerned, the cancelation of threads seems to have
some issues. For example, when you're trying to cancel a thread which is
terminating by itself, you sometimes get a segmentation fault. This is a
problem since when using cancelation, it is very hard to know if a
thread is currently exiting. I think some tests stressing the
cancelation subsystem could be a good addition to the LTP.
Another thing which could be great in the LTP would be to execute the
tests from the OPTS (included) from within the default execution script,
as this testsuite tests for features which are not tested in the LTP.
(The nptl directory of the LTP could be a link to the OPTS for example?)
Some ad to conclude, if you are wanting to contribute to testing the
NPTL please visit the webpage from my sign and more especially the
forum, where you can find information on what features (from POSIX) are
not tested yet.
