161 - Carry out GHOP unit test on the Joomla! 1.5 Test Package: Media Manager

Postby Marieke92 » Sun Jan 06, 2008 7:19 pm

Just claimed the (fitfth) task.
I thought this was an important one to improve the stable release of Joomla! 1.5, that's why I choosed for it.
One line summary
Carry out GHOP unit test on the Joomla1 1.5 Test Package: Media Manager

Description
In this task you will help the Joomla! team prepare for the release of
Joomla! 1.5 by carrying out a systematically organized set of tests and
reporting the results.
The test plan is available here:
http://code.google.com/p/google-highly- ... anager.odt
You will carry out the tests using at least three web browsers from the
following list: Firefox 2.0 Internet Explorer 6 Internet Explorer 7 Safari Opera
In your report you should clearly indicate which tests were passed or
failed. For example you might want to indicate a failed test by using a red
font.

Skills Needed
    * Good organizational ability
    * Access to multiple browsers
    * Access to a Joomla! 1.5 website created using the 1.5 Test Package

Work Product
A complete report summarizing testing results. In addition to the results
for your test include complete details of the hosting environment,
including versions of your operating system, server, MySQL and PHP.
The product may be either a spreadsheet or document and should be done in Open Office

Licensing
Documentation written for this task must be made available under the
Joomla! Electronic Documentation License. will insert the text for the
documentation license

Extra Credit (optional)
COmplete the testing on all 5 browsers

Time Limit
2 Days

Task claimed: 6th of January
Task due: 8th of January

I already installed the 1.5 test package. Also installed Opera and Safari, so I can test with all 5 browsers.
I'll start now with the testing. Don't know if I'll be ready today, but of course I'll post my draft version then.

I think I will make a table with Ok or Failed, and below that the description of what happened with the failed ones.

Draft1 is ready.
Already tested with IE6, IE7 and FF2.
Tomorrow I'll finish the document by testing the other 2 browsers and adding license, author, introtext, etc.

Marieke92,

Terrific! What I would like you to do is to add the pages from the test document that explain the tests to your document.


Then go ahead and upload to Google! Thanks for your contributions to Joomla!
