Note(s) from the Maintainer:
Finally we completed 2008. See the no. of contributors we have now compared to last year. That speaks the volume of work you have been doing so far. And i am hoping that a much vigour work towards this project will be kept in 2009 as well.

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 & Happy New Year 2009,
