Note(s) from the Maintainer:
Garrett continued with his effort to stabilize the new build system and tried to accommodate everybody´s problems. More than 80% of the changes this month are due to fixes by Garret. Thanks for such huge effort. Recently, hovering over some statistics i found that around 30 institutions contribute to LTP. This is a great news for us to cheer. We would hope that this count will keep increasing in future.

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,
