I think I can do that (I have to check if all the licenses allow that,
but I don't think there would be a problem. And the software I wrote
myself I can easily release under the GPL)

Thanks, but thats not a problem: I have lots of FTP and Web-Space,
and a 768kbps lease-line connection to the internet...

The real question is how to setup such a test-suite in a way that
it is portable and usable for many people. I have to think about
that a little bit. Suggestions are welcome... :-))

I think it's worth to put some effort into that.
If anyone has some ideas or even a test program to contribute,
please contact me directly. I will collect these and provide
a first version of a Linux test-suite. Maybe thats a first step
to a Linux "Quality Assurance Team"? :-))
