At one point there was a list of tests that that could be purchased (either 
transfer of copyright, or at least put under a suitable license) for things 
the LSB test suite was lacking coverage. ncurses was one of the things on 
the list and IIRC the amount was $10k USD, but I don't know who the 
supplier is. The FSG has funds earmarked for purchasing those tests, but I 
don't know what happened to it.

Anyone know?
