Today marks the completion of the prioritization work for the Linux
NFSv4 Test Matrix. The fully prioritized version of the test matrix,
1.12, is now available:
This represents the efforts of over a dozen individuals over the course
of about twenty weekly calls, plus numerous mailing list discussions.
We consider this to be a pretty thorough analysis of what needs to be
tested, and hope the priorization work will help testers determine where
their energies are best directed.
The Test Matrix provides a broad, top-level overview of the work. In
some cases the steps needed to perform the tasks are clear, but in many
cases further detail is needed --- If you do not have the time or
resources to participate with the full testing, simply helping with
planning out a few tests will be a significant contribution! Please
drop me an email if you are interested in this.
As well, while our prioritization work has identified the highest
priorities, we've got a LOT of high priority items. What we need to do
is identify a subset to do in the near term, then a subset to do after
that, etc. By dividing the work into a sequence of milestones, we will
be able to focus on tangible points of achievement and set expectations
about the order the work will be done. I anticipate posting this
'testing roadmap' within the next week or so.
Thank you everyone who participated in the prioritization effort and
helping us meet this milestone. :-)
