We will continue to work on XML output in coming days and also evaluate and finally integrate auto build of kernel and test to LTP in future. New test cases will continue to get added from community and soon we will start to investigate all existing test cases for their overall effectiveness in functionality testing. Your support to improve LTP is extremely essential and i am expecting more support from you on this.
