In this revision the implementation of PLATFORM_STANDARDS_MANUAL_TESTS_R0 should be exported in a separate wiki pages and expanded.

Task requirements

The explanation should be detailed enough to explain how these actions are accomplished in trac or testlink.

Task result

The result is wiki pages.

Implementation idea

Create a test case and a ticket for demonstration purposes, point them as examples in the documents.

How to demo



For writing manual test cases, we will use Testlink. We will use our Trac for bug reporting.

PLATFORM_STANDARDS_MANUAL_TESTS page will be created. The information in it will not be that much to be split into two subpages as stated in the analysis. Instead, these will be separate sections as follows:

|_Standards for Manual Testing
|__Tracking test cases
|__Reporting bugs

The contents of these sections will be:

  • Standards for manual testing - an overview of the contents of the page.
  • Tracking test cases - basic rules for writing test cases.
  • Reporting bugs - instructions on how to report a bug in the Trac.
  • Reviewing - what to look for when reviewing the test phase of a task.
  • Comments - suggestions for improvements of the standards that will be used in the next revision.

Everyone has been asked about suggestions on the standards and the responses will be taken into consideration in the implementation.

A basic test plan should include at least:

  • Opening Sophie2
  • Creating/Opening a new book
  • Adding/deleting pages to a book
  • Adding/deleting frames on a page
  • Saving/Closing books
  • Closing Sophie2

These will be discussed with the Release team after some testing is performed. Then they will be added to Testlink.

Bug types custom field should be added to the Trac (with the help of pac). Bug types include, but are not limited to:

  • data loss
  • memory leak
  • low performance
  • regression (previously working feature is now broken),
  • exception causing
  • unexprected behaviour

These will be discussed with the Release team after some bugs have been reported. Then they will be added to the Trac system.

Since the testing process is not clear enough, only a basic version of the document will be created. It will be updated continuously throughout the testing.

The newly created page will be linked where needed.


PLATFORM_STANDARDS_MANUAL_TESTS created according to the design. The newly created page (as well as all other standards pages) was linked in the PROCESS, ImportantDocs and PLATFORM_STANDARDS_GENERAL as well as in the backlog.
