Re: Enhancements to Glance in Diablo? Input welcomed


How about QA?  Is this something that you'd want to consider specifically for Glance?  It's the newest of our services, and the smallest team, so I think that it's worthwhile explicitly blocking out some time to look at automated testing in an integrated environment.  Given the size of the images involved, it won't take much to put some serious stress on Glance, so some scalability / stress testing would be really valuable.
