Update Manager - Suggestion

The first patches that come out for 3.5 will be our first test of Update Manager. Any problems found with UM will have to be addressed in a later update. Wouldn't it be kinda nice if VMware would put some dummy testing updates out there for us to test with, before real updates come out?

At first they need to support proxy authentication, or we'll never ever get any updates :-((
