I wonder if Bugzilla would be better than the wiki?

We could create a "product" in BZ for all test cases, with
"components" under that for different test areas, like "performance
test", "smoke test", "detailed test", etc.

One BZ issue per test case.

For each test pass, we simply reset each test case/issue back to "New
state".  We then test each issue.  If the test case passes, then we
mark the BZ issue as closed.  If the test case fails, then we already
have a BZ issue for the developers.

Pro: Makes it very easy to make new test cases from existing BZ
issues, or to make BZ issues from testcases.

Con: Reporting not so good.   Does not handle doing multiple test
passes in parallel.  For example, if we wanted to test AOO 4.0 in
parallel with a maintenance AOO 3.4.1 release.

I tried their demo site.  It was very slow.  Does anyone have
experience with Test Link?
