ctubbsii opened a new issue #127: Create "test cases" to help users contribute to release testing
URL: https://github.com/apache/fluo-website/issues/127
   To help with release candidate testing, and to give people a way to give feedback who may
not really be familiar with Fluo, we should have some test cases documented on the website,
and linked to from the releasing section of our docs.
   A test case is a simple series of instructions that tells a user exactly what to do, and
what should happen. It should *NOT* be a HOWTO or instructions on what is going on. A test
case is not intended to be a teaching tool (although users running test cases) may learn something...
but *EXTREMELY* simple step-by-step instructions that requires no thought whatsoever to follow
and report back the results.
   Some examples of test cases can be found here on the [Fedora wiki][1]. Two simple ones
are [opening PDFs in evince][2] and [verifying basic yum commands][3]. There are other examples,
but I think these two represent the idea best. One provides simple instructions for testing
a GUI application, and the other for CLI. What they have in common I think best represents
the idea.
   Good test cases will allow people to contribute to Fluo releases without knowing anything
about Fluo.
