CHARTER:

  The purpose of this newsgroup is to give authors of software packages a 
  place to post in hopes of finding people willing to test their packages.  
  No source code should ever be posted to comp.sources.testers.  

  comp.sources.testers should be used as a first stage before posting to 
  any of the source newsgroups, including alt.sources, comp.sources.misc, 
  comp.sources.games, comp.sources.unix, the various machine specific source
  groups, and even comp.sources.reviewed.  

  Most of the subject lines should look like

    Subject: Need beta testers for ppmtovcr, another portable bitmap converter

  or perhaps final announcements like

    Subject: Done with gamma testing for ppmtovcr, posted to c.s.misc

  along with acknowledgments. Cross posts into comp.sources.testers are fine 
  when there's an appropriate subject group. Topics like

     Subject: What metrics do you use for evaluating object-oriented programs?

  belong in comp.software-eng, not comp.sources.testers.
