GroupWise FTFs

I think I have a pretty good idea of the answer but I want to open this up for discussion.  Historically the GroupWise team has released Field Test Files (FTFs) which contain the most recent fixes – these are largely not tested by our formal test teams, though they are sanity checked for install and for the particular issues that we are interested in (that falls to my team, rather than testing).  Within Novell we are about the only product team to do this.
I am interested in hearing about your GroupWise FTF experiences.  How many of you rely on them and apply them all?  How many of you apply the ones with the fixes that you need?  How many of you don’t apply them at all (and why)?  What do you think we could do better?  Do we release them often enough (or not)?  Lots of questions I know, but I am genuinely interested in hearing your opinions.

This is the amazing David Reveman, maintainer of Xgl. David lost his wallet at the GUADEC beach party last night. I lent him 50 Euro to get him through the day. It was the least I could do.

JP Rosevear

This is JP Rosevear, who heads up an all-star team of Linux desktop hackers at Novell. Sorry for the bad focus, it couldn’t be helped: just after the shutter fell, JP dashed away screaming something about my last round of reports in bugzilla (20).

This was the first time I have met the mighty Aaron Bockover, brilliant maintainer of Banshee.

Some users in Ryan Kelly’s environment forget to change the the Drop Down Menu option to “Shutdown” when they go to leave for the day. This is especially true for computer labs in schools. If the setting is not automatically set to Shutdown and is set to, say, Restart, they Restart the machine instead of shutting it down. Here’s an easy fix.

OK everyone, I’m taking a number of approaches on this question. I’ve been interviewing internally, and using other means… and now I want to know from you.

  1. Are you using, or planning on using ZENworks Handheld Management in your organization?
  2. Are you looking at the need to support devices which run Windows Mobile 5?
  3. What timeframe are you looking at for support for your mobile devices?

Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!!
