Right about now is a great time for our user community to jump in and
do some install and upgrade tests.

The 4.3 release cycle is fully in swing, and I hope that I can get it
over with soon so that the developers can start work on the bug fixes
and new work that can't make it into 4.3.

Here's a list of the things that need testing. I hope that to most
people this list is rather self explanatory; if in doubt just think
for a particular test might mean, grab a snapshot for some
architecture, and take a shot at testing the ones that you can!

Our developers work from a list similar to this, but this time I am
asking that our user community jump in and help as much as they can,
too. I'm hoping to expose the testing mentality a bit.. so that more
people help.

I must note something of importance in this list. Some things are
easy to test, because well... everyone has a PC. Well, the problem is
that the bugs we look for in the last bit of a release cycle are more
likely to be in vax net booting, or sun4c having a problem, or a
particular alpha bug... I mention this hoping that some of you see
that there must be a balance of some sort. We want all of our
architectures to shine. When everything is great on the little old
architectures, then the common ones will be great too.

As always, if you find a problem, please file a high quality Problem
Report (if you have the strength, check the PR database first to see
if similar PRs are not yet closed). You can use the command
sendbug(1) to send a PR...

If you are able to, please submit a dmesglog of the running machine to
dmesg@openbsd.org -- with the Subject: set to the type of your machine
(ie. SunFire V215, or IBM eServer 325 or such) -- and PLEASE avoid the
use of MIME, but instead send your messages without any special
encoding since it lets our developers grep easily through the logs
looking for specific machines when they are fixing bugs. Recently, I
have had to start deleting the MIME submissions with the SPAM.

Of course, little that you report will be fixed in the release, but if
we run into any show stoppers.. it is a best that we know now.

Please also note something else of importance. Since we are close to
a release, the snapshots are in a constant state of flux -- as we make
changes new ones are being put onto the FTP mirrors very quickly.
Please make sure that the files you download have correct MD5
checksums, and please include the timestamps of the files in your bug
reports.

Thanks.
