Re: Fwd: Wily RC Images rolling out to the tracker


if you follow the testcases that are on the tracker, you can report success
or failure on them. this is the only way we have to ensure measurable,
reproducable results. everything else is smoke testing, at best.
unfortunately, that's not really useful in most cases.
