Linux Test Project February Release Announcement

Marty Ridgeway writes "The Linux Test Project test suite http://www.linuxtestproject.org has
been released. The latest version of the testsuite contains 2,100+ tests
for the Linux OS. Our Web site also contains other information such as:
test results, a Linux test tools matrix, technical papers and HowTos on
Linux testing, and a code coverage analysis tool.

Developers from the Linux Test Project co-authored the whitepaper,
"Putting Linux Reliability to the Test." This article documents the
test results and analysis of the Linux kernel and other core OS
components, including everything from libraries and device drivers to
file systems and networking, all under some fairly adverse conditions,
over a period of 60 days. You can find the paper at:
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-rel

Release Highlights:

* Code cleanups by Erik Andersen, Glen Foster, Jay Turner, and
Ming Gao.

* Improvements to allow tests to build and execute under more
environments and distributions.

We encourage the community to post results to ltp-results@lists.sf.net,
and patches, new tests, or comments/questions to ltp-list@lists.sf.net."
