One limitation with releases has always been size of cluster testing 
-where Yahoo!s contributions have been invaluable. That said, we 
shouldn't make them an SPOF in the release process; we should all set up 
to do some more release testing. Looking round my house I see that I 
have 1 linux desktop, 4 linux laptops (All Ubuntu 10.04) , 2 OS/X 
machines and an OLPC, plus three WebOS phones that can take a JVM, all 
connected via a netgear N600 router, (ignoring CentOS virtual machine 
images). If I can actually bring up a heterogenous cluster here then it 
would be a contribution, and I'm sure others have equal messes of home 
and work systems that could be used to test bad system configurations. 
If successful we can add a netgear 802.11 {a, b, g, n} router to the 
list of switches known to work once you get DNS right.

What would be good here is more documentation on how the beta testers 
can generate realistic loads to stress our clusters, using the stress 
test tools that are already in the codebase. I guess I may start on that 
if/when I start playing with the tools.
