We now have our panel of judges.  Thanks to Stan, Rajesh and John for 
volunteering.  Now all we need  is an army of users to try their 
applications and flush all the bugs out of the product and documentation 
for 10.2.  Please take a look and participate.


I was rereading the open source classic, "The Cathedral & the Bazaar" by 
Eric Raymond  this weekend and was struck once again by the lessons of 
open source.  These two relate directly to 10.2 testing I think.

#8.  Given a large enough beta-tester and co-developer base, almost 
every problem will be characterized quickly and the fix obvious to someone.
#10. If you treat your beta-testers as if they're your most valuable 
resource, they will respond by becoming your most valuable resource.

I believe both of these are very true.  Please try 10.2!
