I'll be happy to test IRIX again when the time comes...

| Since you can't test on all platforms, if you fix platform-specific bugs
| bettween now and final release, I suggest you make bundles (tar, Windows
| installer, whatever) available (without need for CVS) and specifically ask
| the people who reported those bugs to check things out using the appropriate
| bundle(s). This is as opposed to making such stuff available and then
| posting a general note to the various mailing lists asking people to try
| things out. I think if you're more direct with people who have
| "interesting" platforms, you will improve the chances of wringing out a few
| more bugs before the actual release.
