My original question was merely to ascertain what the testing environment
was to be, if this was intended as a set of private by company tests or
a more interactive session such as the pre-bake off. It was not my intent
to indicate that I did or did not want to observe or that having observers
was good or bad.
Your latest message answers my question, specifically,
"I am concerned if people think they can come to the interoperability
testing just to observe. That is not the intent of the interoperability
testing and will be counter productive to getting the testing completed."
I further understand that the results of testing will remain private. I would
assume therefore that the test results will not be a subject of discussion at
the working group meetings.
