[Mono-devel-list] NUnit Regression test suites.

Hi all,

To be clear, I should point out that the extensibility features are
still not in a full release
of NUnit, but only in the "Iteration Releases" on SourceForge. That's
our signal that
the details might change in the future - and in fact they have and will
continue to do it.

If there's sufficient benefit, that might not be an obstacle to using
one of these releases
for Mono development.
