I proposes a Plone Selenium sprint with the goal of implementing the initial
Functional Testing Plan for Plone.


Best regards,

Maik Röder


When: Thursday and Friday after EuroPython (June 30th-July 1st 2005)

Sprint leader: Maik Röder

Remote Sprinting via IRC is also encouraged!

Plone should use Selenium to build a functional testing suite. Right now, Plone
has a proper unit testing framework, but there's no automated tests verify UI 
functionality. This is becoming increasingly important as Plone gets more 
functionality added, and more complex operations that may fail because of broken

We should make sure the most important functionality is always tested, and that
it works in different browsers. Selenium is an excellent approach to this, and 
ties in well with how Plone already approaches things from a JS perspective.

The Plone Selenium sprint will start the implementation of the Testing
Plan for each Plone component. A testing plan contains all the test cases that
need to be run. Each testing plan should describe the methodology used for
testing and describe the desired results.
