It was too late at night when I wrote this, and I now see how you
could interpret it exactly opposite of the way I intended it! What I
was trying to say is that other than the free software community, and
especially other than Cygnus, I see very little in the proper
application of automatic testing of software.
You guys *WROTE* dejagnu! You set the pace! I meant this to show the
great example you are setting for the commercial software world.
Sorry for the backwards way I said it. :-)
