Subject Re: NetCAT test assignments
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2018 07:47:11 GMT
I think not everyone who signed up for NetCAT has a test spec assigned. Given that, there
should by default be one test spec assigned per person instead of multiple per person and
then anyone who completes their test spec should speak up and have a new one assigned to them.
I plan to have mine done today. Maybe others can indicate when theirs will be done and then
those who don't respond we'll know we should take their test spec from them first when someone
else completes theirs.

 Thanks for the note Glenn.  I think that the current process works okay.  I like the workflow,
and I believe that people will just need time to get through their test cases.  Id say give
it another week and see how the progress goes.  I would be willing to bet that this week
will be more active as we are creeping closer to the deadline.
