The Linux Test Project test suite has been released for the month of
DECEMBER 2009. Please see ltp/INSTALL file carefully, as, there has
been multiple changes for building/installing the test suite after the
recent changes in Makefile infrastructure.
The latest version of the test-suite contains 3000+ tests for the Linux
OS and can be found at:

Note(s) from the Maintainer:
Garrett & Mike still continued with their effort to stabilize the new build system. Introspecting ourselves at the end of the year, i find LTP as a community project is in strong footing. Following are the various interesting statistics about LTP during this year 2009:
Over 30 Institutions contributed throughout the year,
1. No. of Patches contributed to LTP increased by 232% compared to last year,
2. 93% more source files were affected due to patching, making those tests better,
3. There is more than 200% increase in the no. of new testcases contributed to LTP,
4. The source code size increased almost 12% over the last year,
This is indeed a great achievement for LTP. And with tremendous hope, i would believe that LTP would scale more heights in this year and future, and would remain the project for the community; contributed by the community.
