Re: [gnome-desktop-testing] A thought about integrating Mago to desktop project source


Sounds interesting... Where can I/we find out more information about Mago? How does this relate to the LDTP work?


Hi there,

The GNOME desktop testing project/Mago is stepping forward, more and
more people are involving and contributing to this great project. Ara
did make a great presentation on this year GUADEC, and presentation
attracted much people there, people show their interests on this
automating testing framework.

This reminds me, could we integrate this automation testing framework to
the desktop project source code? To add a testing line in makefile, so
that each time when developer changes the code, builds the application,
the automation testing will be executed to make sure there will be no
serious regression introduced.

Mago/GNOME desktop testing has set up a bzr/git repository to store the
automation test cases for some application, and test cases are still in
developing. To introduce the automation testing to project source will
help both project owner to find out bugs and Mago/GNOME desktop testing
team to implement more automated test cases. Everyone will benefit from
this, I think.

I discussed this idea with Ara in irc channel, she also agreed with this
proposal, so I'd like to send this idea out for getting more feedbacks.
Any thoughts, suggestions and comments are always welcome. If GNOME
community could accept this, I think that would be a great thing for
both developers and QAs.

Thank you.
