RE: Browser Automation Working Group at TPAC.

Kept pretty simple, I think a ghost browser type demo would be pretty compelling, especially if it involved some UI-related HTML5 features (things which otherwise it’s impossible to script).

If you can point to examples e.g. on the wiki (I can’t find any related info on the group home page or wiki yet), I can try to prepare a demo of a real in-service site test for some of our mobile apps. I expect that would raise the interest of our QE team least, and is something we could use to raise interest in other service providers.

There are already implementations of the spec by the selenium OSS project, Chrome and Opera with a new implementation being built by Mozilla.

I'd be more than happy to do a demo. Is there anything that you'd find interesting? We can start from a simple search on a well-known search engine on multiple different browsers (including pottering across domains in gleeful disregard of the single host origin policy) to something meatier (potentially sending an email via gmail?) What would whet your appetite?

Depending upon the availability of any experimental implementations of the spec (, could we get someone to setup a demo of what can be done with the automation features? I think this might help to drive more interest, especially if we could publish this in advance.

Hi Everyone,

I would like to start getting a consensus on what we would like to do at TPAC so that people can organise travel. We have the 2 days[1] in the schedule and I think that we should use both days.

Rough Agenda:

  *   Monday 29 October

     *   Work on wording of spec and discuss potential issues that may have cropped up from when we published it.

  *   Tuesday 30 October

     *   Complete any outstanding spec discussion and start work on tests for the specification.

If people are happy with this arrangement then we can see about making the relevant travel arrangement.
