I've seen that it has graduated now, great!

I see what you're asking for here, but I was just fooling around with
the distribution protocol and another programming language.  Perhaps
Dave has some input here?

I've done a new commit here (where I've added two more testcases to
epmd_SUITE.erl):

    git fetch git://github.com/klajo/otp.git epmd_port2resp_trunc_extra

I didn't amend my previous commit, since it had already graduated from 'pu'.


Thanks and Regards,
Klas
