    5555This is really powerful because you can take full advantage of the custom reporting engine in TRAC to look for open tickets of type testcase that belong  to a particular tester, and also monitor the progress of a group of testers.

    57 There was some confusion about this as it seemed like a single ticket would be "owned" by multiple testers.  TRAC's data model makes this impossible (also I think that assigning test tickets in that way would be really clunky).   
     57There was some confusion about this as it seemed like a single ticket would be "owned" by multiple testers.  TRAC's data model makes this impossible (also I think that assigning test tickets in that way would be really clunky).  The testcase is in subversion, while a test instance (in the form of a TRAC ticket), is in TRAC.

    5959Essentially what happens is the testcase is an xml document stored in subversion.  The testcasemanagementplugin creates a ticket with the test case details as the ticket description and assigns that ticket to a specific tester: one ticket per tester per testcase.

    6969My personal philosohpy is to encourage people to write workflow or task based driven testcases and have the tester use their brains to find issues.  I call it script based Exploratory testing.  Check out Exploratoy testing by James Bach at http://satisfice.com .  If they need to look at the UI in very high detail then the test case could simply be "compare the UI to the mockup and here's the link to the screen shot: http://(screen shot checked in to subversion)".  If there is no mock up, trying to describe a GUI using words is completely ridiculous and it shouldn't be the job of a test case to document what the GUI looks like.
