WestHost Clients,

We are currently looking for a group of Beta Testers to aid us in testing Perl 5.8.7 prior to launch. We will need 20 to 30 people willing to provide feedback throughout a three week Beta period. Beta testing will begin on September 25th and run through October 22nd. If you are interested please send an e-mail to tina@westhost.com, with your contact information.

The following details should be noted before signing up:
- Testing will include (but is not limited to) the following Perl-dependent applications:
*Perl 5.8.7
*Spam Assassin
*File Manager
*PerlFect Search
*Dada Mail

- Testing should also include personal Perl scripts or applications
- Each Beta Tester will be given a test account on one of our testing servers that contains the new applications
- Testers will be required to respond with Feedback twice weekly, failing to do so may result in your spot as a Beta Tester being forfeited to another.

Again, if you are interested in taking part in this Beta Test, please send an e-mail to tina@westhost.com with your contact information.
You will be contacted no later than Tuesday September 20th with account details and testing instructions.

Thank you for your continued support. We appreciate all that you contribute to the stregthening of WestHost's applications, and look forward to working with you on our Beta Team.

Thank you to all of you who have signed up to participate in the beta period thus far. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
We are, however, still in need of several more participants.

To make the deal a little sweeter, we are offering the following to clients who complete the beta period and submit the required feedback:

- A "Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister" Perl t-shirt (see attached image). We will be collecting your shirt size, and mailing address. Shirts will be mailed to you at the close of the beta period.
- Your site(s) will be the first to receive the new applications at launch. We will manually apply the new site applications to your site(s) so you don't have to wait for the mass deployment. We anticipate that you will receive the applications 2-7 days earlier than other WestHost clients.

Again, please submit any requests for beta testing to tina@westhost.com.
