I appreciate the effort, and am interested in the idea, but in this case it was as much a solicitation for a developer as for the testing environment itself. This won't just be "testing" of netncp and nwfs, this will probably require a developer to have local access to a netware configuration that they can do nasty things to in order to exercise the code properly. Unfortunately, those seem to be in short supply. If I might suggest: there's a freebsd-qa mailing list. It's a great place to organize QA efforts, whereas freebsd-chat is notorious for its lack of signal (it's where dead signals go to rot). That's why I read it about once a month. If you moving the conversation there and get a bunch of people subscribed and interested, they'll be able to look there for the stream of bug fixes associated with the install process, and get easy access to the testing guide as it evolves, since we usually pass drafts through there, etc. Robert N M Watson FreeBSD Core Team, TrustedBSD Projects [EMAIL PROTECTED] Network Associates Laboratories To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
