Testing status

I will report approx weekly here. I have written a cURL, DOM and SimpleXML based browser instead of the sockets-based, PHP4-compatible Simpletest browser. This lets us inherit from unit_tester.php instead of web_tester.php, removing lots of code. I strive to finish it within a few days. Things you can help include making Simpletest to always start with a clean state, a new set of prefixed tables, see the issue for more. If you fancy writing tests, visit Functional SimpleTest Status - List of all tests for example dblog and tracker tests would be easy to write. Also, reviewing and polishing the existing codebase which written through the last three years and somewhat dated here and there would be good too. If the community does not embrace testing we are facing a very short code thaw: we have two months left and that's it.

In other news, boombatower is now a co-maintainer of simpletest and he cleaned up the issue queue nice. He also maintains the aforementioned list.

Does this relate to at all?

That is a whole different thing, it just happens to use Simpletest.
