Re: Test Case Management


Is there any way in which one can take a look at TestRail system?  I would appreciate if someone has the instance deployed and could add me to the system.

I'm concerned about that from an l10n POV. I'd like to see practical 

With moztrap, we were in a similar boat, and I think we paid quite some 
price. Features like testing speed projections etc really need to be 
designed to support testing products that are localized.

Side-stepping, on the l10n side, we're quite happy about categorizing 
test results, and they're in a hierarchy of results. In l10n, a plain 
"yes/no" isn't good enough. 
is looking promising, in categorizing test failures. Those issue types 
at a corse level allow to understand our quality, and at a deeper level 
instruct us on how to improve and coach.

I'd personally really like to hear some war stories from the Gurocks or 
their clients in the field of l10n.
