[80cat] [news] NetCAT 8.0 Game Over, Thank You!
Hello NetCAT team,
this is my last official e-mail to this mailing list announcing that
the NetCAT 8.0 program has reached its end. I have calculated activity
of all NetCAT 8.0 participants and if you are interested in your own
ranking, take a look at the activity overview .
The NetCAT 8.0 program was great again but do you know what I am
pleased about the most? It is the smooth adoption of the Synergy test
management tool. Thanks to Synergy we were able to dramatically increase
number of NetCAT participants helping with sanity/full testing of 8.0
milestone builds which in the end resulted in ~430 contributed hours.
Now let me recognize the most helpful NetCAT 8.0 participants. I am
very happy to announce that according to the activity performance, the
top 3 contributors are:
1. Manikantan Narender Nath, India, 741 points
2. Luca Mambretti, Italy, 582 points
3. Lou Dasaro, USA, 550 points
In the "Special Thanks To" category the winners are:
1. Lou Dasaro, USA, 3 nominations
2. Manikantan Narender Nath, India, 2 nominations
3. Mark Wilmoth, USA, 2 nominations

found the time and responded in the satisfaction survey  for all your
suggestions and nice comments. Thanks folks!
Now, the very last point: as usually please help us spread the
message about the new NetBeans version among your friends, user groups,
in forums, on blogs, at schools etc. The NetBeans IDE 8.0 needs you one
So, thank you very much for all your contributions!
