Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Helper tool / checklist to facilitate RC testing coverage?
Date Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:10:00 GMT
I also think it's fair to make allowances for folks who want to test the RC
but might be short on personal time. So there should be a list of essential
items (like sigs, sums, shas/tags) and then a list of optional items (ltt,
pe, itbll, etc.)
