Hey A.B.,

I wanted to start discussions on the FreeIPMI testsuite.  What are your
ideas?

My ideas are (for the initial start of the testsuite), scripts that:

A) run the user command tools with various permutations of options
B) sanity check the output (i.e. are temperatures > 0 and < 1000 degrees
Celsius)
C) over LAN and In-Band

There would have to be a config file that the user must input IP
addresses, usernames, and etc.

What are your ideas?

Al
