First Test Day of New Year January 2nd

We are getting started early in 2007 with our drive toward the release of Sunbird and Lightning. To do that, we’re throwing a test day on January 2nd. We will be testing remote calendaring again, because there is so much to test in that area. We have endeavored to make this testing as easy as possible for people, and we have provided a few servers that you can use (so you don’t have to set up your own).

We wish you a happy new year, and we can’t think of a better way to kick off 2007 than spending a few hours working with your favorite calendar project. We hope to see you on January 2nd.

For dates, times, details, and all of that, please turn to our ever faithful wiki page: http://wiki.mozilla.org/Calendar:Current_QA_TestDay

Results From December 19th Test Day

  • 35 Litmus Test Cases Run
  • 3 New Bugs Found

Due to the lack of advance notice, we had a very light test day. However, the folks who attended did very good work. We will have another “Remote Calendar Test Day” because remote calendars still need quite a bit more testing. Thanks to everyone that participated: Ulf, Andreas, Ssitter, xFallenAngel, Omar_public, Jminta, Lilmatt, UnLoGiC, Mechtilde, Ghoulio, Ogirtd, TFDuesing, Maarten, and Dmose.

Our next test day will be January 2nd. My new year’s resolution will be to make our test days more interactive and more fun. I’m currently brainstorming ways to do that, and I welcome any ideas you may have. If you’ve got an idea, please post it in a comment to this thread. I will post my ideas once I organize them, so you can see them and send me suggestions.

I look forward to seeing you in the new year as we drive toward our next release of Sunbird and Lightning in early 2007. Please have a happy holiday and a wonderful new year’s. I’ll see you on January 2nd.

Results From December 5th Test Day

Congratulations to everyone on a very successful test day. Here is a quick snapshot of the results:

    • 151 Litmus Test Cases Ran!
      17 Litmus Cases Failed, 4 found to be unclear
      20 bugs found!
  • We ran a complete regression on both Sunbird and Lightning, ensuring that the recent database patch did not have any unintended side effects. We were also able to focus testing energy on the new prototype dialogs that the Sun team has been implementing. I’d like to thank everyone who was involved for their continued (and new) contributions: xFallenAngel, Sebo, Ulf, Andreas, Nightrat, Ssitter, Koenh, Matthaeus123, Fopper, Nor123, Soupes, Mechtilde, Mschroeder, Celina63, Dmose, Jminta, Lilmatt, Sandos.

    We also held a mini-test day on December 1st with 22 students from Seneca College in Toronto. In a whirl-wind effort, they confirmed 16 unconfirmed bugs and filed 6 defects in 45 minutes! We are looking forward to working with the Seneca students again next semester.

    Our next test day will be December 19. We will dedicate this day to testing the various types of remote calendars that Sunbird and Lightning can use: FTP, CalDav, WebDav, WCAP. As a holiday gift to the entire community, a new remote calendar provider might be available for testing on the 19th. You can either stay tuned for more information on that, or you can get a sneak peak by volunteering to aid with the preliminary smoke-testing of the new provider (assuming it lands). To volunteer, just drop by the #calendar-qa channel.

    Thank you very much for the excellent test day on the 5th. We could not do it without you.

    See you on the 19th.
