Not at all. It just gives a certain level of satisfaction that all the
basic functionality appears to work (at least the stuff they've written
tests for).  The proof of the pudding will be in the eating :)

Keep in mind that RH 8 shipped with 2.2.93 + patches so it should be
relatively stable.

Interesting. It is worthwhile doing "make -k check" so that the tests go
right thru' to the end. Ensure to capture the build log then you can grep
to see which tests failed.
