How to report the results

Tester writes test report. The test report has unique structure

-Description of problem (for example description of bug with link to bugzilla)
-Test scenario (all details needed to reproduce test)
-Infrastructure used to perform test (for example testbed with specification of software)
-Expected results
-Output of test (for example stdout, stderr)
-Comments and proposals (should be used as feedback for developers) 
-The final decision PASSED/FAILED

Test report must be copied in the Test report for EMI comp[onents (wiki) Follow structure of reports recommendation is to keep order of items (for example regression tests bug 1, 2 , 7)


Regression testing:

If bug is successfully verified change status in bugzilla  to VERIFIED, then provide information about the result in the initial table in the wiki

Priority tasks -actual status

Deploiment tests

Testing deployment of ARC Information System components is priority

The ARC packages (including rc1 of ARC 1.0.1 release) intended for the upcoming EMI-1 update release are now available from the official testing repo

the corresponding repo file is this

The ETICS configurations used for producing the packages are under emi-arc_R_1_0_1_0 subsystem configuration in emi/arc ETICS subsystem.

The specific tags used in configuration are:
