Calling all mesh clothing makers

If you want the mesh deformer to become official, please head over to VWR-28846, see what mesh clothing is being requested for help with testing, and provide it. If you don't, there's a good chance that the mesh deformer code, after all the hassle, brouhaha, and shaming of LL by crowdfunding the deformer code, won't make it into the official SL client, and therefore, by the infamous 2(k), nobody will be able to have it. Here's Oz Linden on the topic, from the JIRA:
Perhaps this issue really isn't all that important, or worth the trouble to integrate. 
So far, only one designer has responded with one test garment. 
Let me be clear - the lack of test material is a major blocker for testing, and therefor[sic] accepting, this proposed feature.  If you want it, step up and do it soon.
I have to wonder why LL doesn't have such items left over from testing, but that's irrelevant. Please don't give them an excuse.

UPDATE: Designers have already commented that five days four days and not quite sixteen and a half hours, the time between the request for clothes in the JIRA and the above thinly veiled threat, is a pretty short interval, and it is. I just want the feature to be adopted.

UPDATE: Do read Nalates Urriah's post on the subject.
