Sounds great.

Are your files available only on perforce or also outside? It would be
great to have something to test so we can give more accurate
feedback. If you want to share ISO images, I can give you access to
our builder/torrent seeder so everybody can test it. We can even put
it on our mirrors when we'll have a stable product.
