1. Automated Testing

We had a workshop on October 1st about Automated Testing. We looked into iMacro, Selenium, Codeception. There is a lot of documentation on JDocs about Codeception testing. We will check if the documentation is still working and how we could simplify it for more people.

One part is to support automated testing for Joomla in general, the other part is testing in local environments for RCs to support our team members. As Codeception is PHP based this would be the closest to our work.


2. Release Check Sheet

Claudia added the new J4 functions to our Release Check list - thanks a lot so far! When we test the next release we will continue to add the tasks to the missing component areas. This checksheet will also be the basis for the automated tests.

3. RCR Process

Testing checklist is linked from JDocs

Pre Release Testing JDoc → Links to checksheet

“Low-Level” meeting for testing → make a concept for testing - easy access

Marketing Liaison to get people motivated

JUG Lists

→ invite people from “important” Joomla community members

Easy checklist - one channel different rooms

Monday Oct 16th UTC 17:00
