Has any CS prof thought about having their students write regression
tests for NetBSD as a "real world" class assignment? This would
have great benifit to both student and the NetBSD community. The
students would get a feel for the grunt work they will be assigned
to after they graduate, and would get a warm fuzzy for all the
bugs they detect, and the NetBSD community would finally gain
extensive regression tests.
If written in ANSI C the regression tests might even work on other
OS's as well.
After a few years of coursework there should be a very impressive
array of tests built up.
Just a thought,
This would be a good way to get students using NetBSD too!
