This seems like a good deal of progress, well done everyone.

 

I'd ask that we hold off announcing this step, though, until a couple of things have happened. First, it would be worth coordinating with Nacho's new dev manual. Second that we have some conclusions from the coordination call with Marie-Claire, which is scheduled for tomorrow morning 1000 UK time. 

 

And I would like us to give some thought to what the exit criteria from beta would be.

 

How about:

 

1) A period of at least 3 months with no open serious bugs

2) A recorded number of resources scanned with no mis-operation - er, not sure how many is enough to have confidence that one has sampled sufficient Web content to "know" that the checker doesn't mis-operate?

3) 100% test coverage correctly executed ... which itself raises the question of how we resolve that test coverage is complete.

Hi everyone,

 

Congratulations for all the job been done about fixing and improving functionality!

 

Abel and I will finish a first public draft of the Dev Manual this same week (friday or saturday).

Does it make sense to release the beta and the dev manual at the same time?

 

Regards,

 

Nacho

I would support it, indeed; I think  the amount of work that has been
done since the alpha is pretty impressive, and well worth of a new
release.

Looking at the bug lists, I don't see any big enough bug that would
deserve holding up - clearly we need to clean up the objects-related
tests at some point, but that's pending a decision on the mobileOK spec.
