Working procedure for development of test samples

Version control system or something else (?) to store test suite and metadata, and to track changes.

QA IG/WG resources? Especially methodology and processes.

QA Note on Test Metadata: http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/NOTE-test-metadata-20050914/

Tools for storage of samples and test metadata

CS: TCDL description - formal metadata / technologies / test case / rules
... formal metadata: contains formal adminstrative metadata

<Tim> http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/NOTE-test-metadata-20050914/

<Tim> Test Metadata Document

CS: technologies - contains information about technologies used / baseline support
... test case - describes what is necessary for the evaluation of a TC

<Tim> http://esw.w3.org/topic/QA

<Tim> wiki section on "Building a Test Suite"

<Tim> http://www.w3.org/QA/WG/2005/01/test-faq

CS: test case may be evaluated by different groups - experts / end user

<Tim> W3C QA Test Development FAQ Document

CS: description - written desription of the test
... userGuidance - gives further information about how the tes should be performed
... requiredTests - for test modes and one or more test sceanrios
... rules - contains the rules tested by a test case
... the rules are referece a rule ID in a Ruleset XML file

<Tim> http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Test/HTML401/current/htmltestdocumentation.html#testsuiteprinciples

<Tim> HTML4 Test Suite Principles

CS: namespaceMapping - important for test cases based on test files that use XML-based techs

SA: map how an evaluation may be performed by a machine

TB: modes for evaluation by humans?

CS: special vocab in TCDL - which defines questions / answertypes for end user testings

CV: first target was automatic evaluation of test cases - have some test files for end-user evaluation

SA: how do BTW TCDL correlate to QA documents for testings

<carlos> http://bentoweb.org/ts/XHTML1/home

CS: example files: http://www.bentoweb.org/ts/XHTML1/home

CV: updating the test suite, by now state July 05

<carlos> Shane: link to our TS http://bentoweb.org/ts/XHTML1/home

CV: first draft of TCDL - starting point for further work / RDF version?

TB: RDF version of test case schema exists / QA

<Tim> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2006Mar/0023.html

<Tim> Test Metadata in RDF - QAIG

CV: still activity in the QA IG

<Christophe> Draft RDF Schema is at http://www.w3.org/2006/03/test-description.rdf

<scribe> ACTION: TB: please, contact dominique whether there is interest for RDF test metadata [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2006/08/02-tsdtf-minutes.html#action01]

<carlos> Christophe,please, post the minutes to the list ;-)
