Always happy to discuss testing. I believe that Susan Stanziono of Xinuos
system test team already spoke to some of you. Please do not hesitate to
reach her for any specific needs. Also, Cheryl Blain - Xinuos VP of
operations - will be at the MeetBSD vendor summit on Nov 3-4 and can reach
to Craig.


Keep well.


Interim CTO

At the Cambridge Dev Summit, Xinuous specifically mentioned helping with
testing and writing tests. Might be good people to reach out to
