RSE 1.0 Testing round 1

Nav: DSDP/TM | RSE 1.0 Testing | RSE 1.0 Test Instructions | RSE 1.0M5 Known Issues and Workarounds | RSE Manual Test Plan

This is the master coordination page for RSE 1.0 Testing round 1, to be done with RSE 1.0M5, 25-Sep-2006 - 27-Sep-2006. Please sign up here for testing particular features of RSE 1.0, or a particular host / target combination. It is important for all of us to coordinate our efforts

  • In order to get bugs submitted early, such that we can fix them for the release
  • In order to avoid duplication of testing work
  • In order to get a good test coverage and exposure of RSE.

Organization and Signup

Detailed RSE 1.0 Test Instructions are being sent out, so don't feel afraid of being signed up to any features you have never heard of before - this might actually help improving your test quality sinc you might tend to try things that nobody else thought about before.

Please put your name in the table below. Feel free to modify the host/target combinations, or features of RSE to test as you find yourself fit. Put an "ok" in the first column when you reviewed your assignment. You may delete assignments or limit your time commitment, but please let us know what you are planning and then stick to your commitment. The list is sorted by company name, then first name.

Signing up for a testing commitment means downloading and installing RSE, checking assigned features, and submitting bugzilla reports. A very basic sanity test should be included for each tester in addition to the specific assignment. I've started assigning 2 hours of testing for contributors / users, and 4 hours of testing for committers, which I think everybody should be able to invest. Of course, doing more testing won't hurt but please try and focus on those areas that you have signed up to.

Thanks to everybody who signs up and thus helps making RSE better!

Test Reports and Bugs Found

Comments from Testers

  • I think the reminders are great! --
  • We should have a formal database with test cases to perform. This could be just Wiki pages grouped by feature and/or use case. --
  • I thought it was well organized -- better than most. --
  • I thought the coverage was good. Also, the test instructions were good. --
  • FTP was just sanity tested since there are quite a lot of standing issues and the engine is going to be replaced. --
  • Given that all assignment are voluntary it is good that you try to formalize things somewhat. (Haven't seen this in the CDT) --
  • The testing was very coordinated. --
  • writes:
    • A presentation from RSE team could have really helped to ramp up our testing and know the features. I didn't have much time reading the documentation.  :)
    • I need to file another bug. I saw when a file name in HP-UX had a ":" in it, the files could not be loaded in the RSE/Eclipse editor.
    • Didn't like the remote console (term) part. Why command line is separate from the console? It was slow. The lines in the console was selectable, but when I right-clicked, "Open With" was disabled. Did not know what to do? And why this feature is there and what it is supposed to do.
    • In two separate installation of Eclipse and RSE, after eclipse crashed while opening the remote PPT file, the eclipse installation became unusable. It does not even come up now. Not sure, it is Eclipse problem or RSE. But as a user of RSE, I didn't like it.
    • About the meeting notice, somehow I didn't get any meeting request. Got the mail only after I came to the office at 9:00am PDT. By the time meeting was over. I am pretty sure, you had the meeting notice somewhere

in the wiki page. But a reminder could have helped.
