Looking for beta testers (rpm installation of Php + SQL Server 7 module)

At some point we will be moving over to Sybase ASE on Linux but we have our
hands full right now.
I will keep your email when we do start then we can get in contact.
As I wrote, Stefan has been helping me with the freetds driver but it seems
like it is going to be a losing battle unless I start making source changes
myself and become a full contributor to the effort.
You see, I am using a commercial jdbc driver now but every time I run into
some problem it takes a long time to get help.
This is why I am so excited about this open source effort you guys are
I do feel that I would have to be able to offer more than just be a beta to
see this kind of project through.
