Hi Lily, Thanks for the proposal.

For this to work we need:

1) Test cases that are clear and easy to understand

2) Test cases that can be run without requiring a  lot of preparation

3) Test cases that can be run without dedicating much time.  How can
someone help who has only 1 hour to contribute?

4) Test cases that can be run without learning a lot of other tools or processes

Is the the same as a "smoke test"?

Maybe we also need a "guide to writing test cases"?  Or point to
something that already exists for the project.

For platforms, maybe we think about them like this:

1) In order to preserve the value of the OpenOffice brand among users
and our reputation for high quality, we will have an official Apache
binary release only on platforms that have successfully completed the
QA plan that we all agree on.

2) Volunteers, based on their interests, will determine which
platforms are officially supported in releases.

3) Platforms that do not have enough volunteers to complete the test
plan would not have official Apache releases.  Or if we had releases,
they would be called "experimental" or some other name to indicate
that they were not fully tested.

4) Of course, anyone is welcome to take our official source releases
and make a build on another platform and distribute it.  But these
would not be official Apache releases.
