When you test mail your successes to beck@openbsd.org as follows: 

arch;first line of dmesg;Machine Description;Stuff it's doing;any comments 

For example, mail something like this for successes..
i386:OpenBSD 3.5-current (GENERIC) #18: Mon Jun  7 14:36:26 MDT 2004:Asus K7V with 1 1.0ghz athlon. + ahc SCSI;Make build in a loop, mailserver, spamd pf/carp/pfsync; looks ok.
sparc64:OpenBSD 3.5-current (GENERIC) #18: Mon Jun  7 14:53:20 MDT 2004:sunblade 150; Ran 1 Make build and built X

Failures require *details* to be mailed, and can be mailed to the list. 
Please make sure it is a failure that happens only with the test kernel,
and not with the current snapshot kernel. If you get a kernel crash
Please ensure you get dmesg, trace and ps from DDB at a minimum.

We would really like to see tests on as wide a spectrum of machines
(particularly for i386) as possible.
