As agreed during our teleconference yesterday, here is a proposed
updated version of the Test Survey; I've tried to integrate the comments
from the Nov 26 telecon [1] and also the input from Lofton "Test show &
tell" [2]; I've published it in our WG space:

Here is included the 1st version for your convenience; please send your
comments ASAP so that we can launch this survey next week.

survey starts here
The QA Working Group is working on gathering experiences of Test
development, so as to better match its deliverables with other Working
Groups needs and expectations. We would appreciate if you could take
the time to answer to the following questions; if some of these are not
applicable to your situation, please let us know why. If any of these
questions is unclear for you, do not hesitate to contact dom@w3.org to
get more details.

1) Name of the WG Specifications for which you have developed or are
developing Test Materials (if you have not developed test materials yet,
you can answer the questions following the way you plan to do so)

2) Describe the relationships between the specifications development
and the test material developments (e.g. Test Suite built during CR,
or test cases developed along each feature in the spec, ...)?

3) What process do you follow to develop your test materials? e.g. how
are new test cases developed, approved, ... (if the process is described
somewhere on the Web, please give us its URI)

4) Describe the information typically associated with a test case in
your test suite (e.g. name, status, link to specification, ...)

5) What is the intended coverage of your test suite? (e.g. "each feature
is tested" or "only difficult features are tested","features at risk
are tested", ...)

6) What parts of your test suite(s) are automated (if any)? Did you use
existing tools to provide this automation or did you develop new ones?

7) What is (are)  the most challenging aspect(s) you encounter in the
development of the test materials?

8) What benefits (if any) did the Working Group get from the development
of these test materials?

9) Any other input you would like to share about your experiences on
these topics.

survey ends here
