platform-testers -- Announcements of prereleases available for testing on multiple platforms


About platform-testers
English (USA)

On this list, GNU package maintainers can announce prereleases and ask them to be tested on multiple platforms. You should subscribe to this list if you are volunteering to test such prereleases on particular platforms. Discussion about portability problems should not be done on this list, but rather on the individual package's list.

We are looking for testers in particular for GNU/Hurd, GNU/kFreeBSD, Solaris 11, Cygwin, Minix. Additional testers are also welcome for MacOS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, AIX, HP-UX, IRIX, OSF/1.
