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.
