This is great, thanks Greg! We'd definitely like to exorcise our BDB
problems (which could well be due to our usage of BDB, not to BDB
itself, to be fair).

I think you'll get a lot of people wanting to test. Rather than make
each one of them seek you out personally, would it be possible for
Sleepycat to just post the URL to the release candidate? As long as
it's clearly labeled as a candidate, people will know what they're
getting into. We do this with Subversion releases, as you may already

If posting the URL doesn't work with Sleepcat's marketing/release
strategy, I understand. But be aware that you'll probably get a lot
of requests from people here wanting to test 4.3.x.

Starting with me :-). If you can't post it to the list, then please
send me that URL by private email.
