Yes that's noticeable, I still think though that the original document
had a more methodology feeling to it though by no means anything finished.
You have no idea how many requests I have received for Endlers original
document, it was released as a methodology. The two testing documents
that you currently are working on bears no such title nor objective if I
have understood it correctly.
It's difficult to do a methodology, but I think it would be fruitful to
begin such a document after we have the two testing documents in house.
Part 1 is still kind of confuse I think, what is its objective? I see it
as an introduction to testing web applications but it doesn't say much.
Part 2 on the other hand I understand will be what to test for and how.
In my opinion, only when these two documents are finished, a methodology
can be established.
The versions around before the project was paused (0.7, 0.6) were still very
much in the pre-production phase (as I'm sure you'll see from the swathes of
yellow highlights and margins full of 'must write this bit'!).
Yes very much so
Congratulations on your session guide btw, very nice work!
