Features pending to be tested

Here is a list of areas that are not yet covered and need some work, implement test cases and add it to a component that belongs or create a new test plan for new component.

ADD FEATURES !!!!!!!!!!

The complete List of QA Implementations for YP 2.7 can be found at Features Implementation by QA Team

Features Not to be tested


Tests will be conducted per the documented test cases stored in Testopia. The test manager will create test runs for each tester. The tester will execute the tests in Testopia and mark each case as Pass / Fail / Skip /Blocked. The tester should leave notes on actual results and any other relevant details when possible.

Once complete, the test manager should review the test run reports in Testopia and report back to the team by mail and in the wiki as a test report.

Pass / Fail Criteria

This criteria is defined in Yocto_Project_v2.7_Status#Yocto_Project_v2.7_Release_Criteria

Exit Criteria

As defined in QA_Master_Test_Plan#Entry and Exit Criteria

Test Deliverables

Test Environment

There are different environments and tools for every type of testing refer to QA_Master_Test_Plan#Test_Areas for more detailed information.
