Summary

This specification outlines our plan for getting Edgy tested properly.

Rationale

Previous releases have been tested in an ad-hoc fashion. Apparently, slightly more organization would be useful, although this has to take into account the organic and volunteer nature of most of our testing infrastructure.

User stories

Scope

This specification outlines how testing is going to approached for Edgy. This is not meant to be a general specification stretching until the end of time.

Plan

We will harness the efforts of the LaptopTestingTeam as well as the BugSquad to provide continuous testing throughout Edgy Eft's development cycle. In this plan, these awesome volunteers will be referred to as the "testing team".

Timeline

See EdgyReleaseSchedule, which this is mirroring a bit.
