[cgl_discussion] Validation Team Minutes 01/15/2003

I have tried to do several things with the TAHI test suite.  It isn't quite
as open as the site suggests.  Also,
they are suppose to have a fully LINUX version, not just FreeBSD but it
doesn't appear on their website.
I still believe there is a large void.  Every time we made a suggestion on
doing some work on the test suite
they said they were doing the same thing already.  But I have looked out on
their website and none of what
we wanted to work on is listed.  That to me doesn't make it a very "open"
project and there are definite
missing areas of tests.

(Sorry I couldn't make it to the meeting, I'm trying to get some stuff
done before I leave early tomorrow.)

http://www.tahi.org/ might disagree with there being a "large void".

They have a publically available (with source code) test suite, with
something like 800 tests in it.  The test kit itself only runs on
FreeBSD w/ KAME, but the device under test can be anything, I think,
including an embedded device.

TAHI is sponsoring a v6 Interoperability Test Event next week in Chiba,

They haven't, AFAIK, run this against Linux 2.5, but in March last year
it was run against USAGI.  That's why I suggested that we prod/offer
money to them to do it against 2.5.  I don't know if they will test it
next week or not, nor when the results will be available.

Better yet, if there are resources available and it doesn't happen next
week, get some of our people to run these tests against 2.5.

If you think it's important, some effort could be put into making it
self-hosting on Linux, but I don't think it's a big deal.
