Some quotes from IRC: ======


    <paroneayea> I think there's two things to that, we could use more unit tests, but we could also really use a functional testing plan
                 that is, a list of steps that somewhere before release time people can go through and test the software and make sure everything is working as expected
    <paroneayea> we could probably use omgmg for it.
    <AVRS> Mozilla uses Litmus, but it's going to be replaced.
    <paroneayea> even just a wiki page detailing procedures would be good, but a better tool like Litmus or a replacement would be nice
    <paroneayea> so this type of testing is less technical
                 it's more like you list a whole bunch of steps to test
                 like, submit a large image, see if it resizes right
                 register with a goofy username, see if it breaks
                 make sure that all of the expected functionality works from a user-clicking-through perspective


Example of Litmus test results:

I will be working on this in conjunction with #458. In addition to that portion I will also write up some manual tests as needed.

The manual funcitonal testing page looks really good. I've added to my workflow to ask users to help us test when it comes about time for release. Thanks, LotusEcho!
