Calendar Test-Writing Day – next Tuesday!

Thanks in large part to intern-extraordinaire Zach, Mozilla has this great testing tool called Litmus. Up until now, it has served as a testing vehicle for Firefox and Thunderbird nightly bulds. We’re now ready to leverage this tool for Sunbird and Lightning as well. First, we need a solid set of testcases that people can run to ensure that the programs are running as they should. This is where you come in!

We want all interested members of our community to help out by writing testcases. No experience is necessary to write testcases, and Clint has done a fantastic job of setting up a wiki-page with everything you need to know to get started contributing Calendar’s Litmus area. This Tuesday, we’re going to have test-writing day where we’re going to have people available to help with any problems, and to get tests that you write into Litmus right away. We also promise to have a small prize for the person who writes the most testcases that day.

For more info on how to get involved, read the wiki-page

  1. Will be happy to join in.

  2. I think I”m available to help.

  3. nice, but I don’t get the goal of litmus – tests are not automated so who’s going to spend time just to test it? How it looks like for firefox or thunderbird?
