    1111

    1313 
    14143. generating specific test runs (taken care of specifically by the plugin)

     16So what is a test run? 
     17 
     18A test run is specific set of test cases for a particular milestone or version of the software under test for a particular tester.  The test managment plugin creates a trac ticket of type testcase for each of the selected test cases.  This is really powerful because you can take full advantage of the custom reporting engine in TRAC to trac test case progress of each tester.

    1620The advantage of having a testcase management tool in trac is that it removes the need to have yet another system that manages testcases...with all the usual problems of maintaing user account, system upgrades, licensing issues.  The other advantage is that it adds more transparency to the testing process as the tool and any testcases are right there for anyone to see. 
    1721 
    1822Test cases are stored in a very simple XML format.  And you can specify collection of test cases (for example a smoke test) by specifying which test cases belong to a test template.  This information is also specified in an xml file.

     24Note this plugin is designed to work with Subversion, although I don't use any specific subversion code.  Potentially this plugin could work with other TRAC supported configuration management systems.  I just haven't tried it.
