It would be great if someone would publish a ubuntu 11.10/12.04 howto for Better Means


This was on my todo list (along with writing some testcases) the main discussion page should help you out a bit, but now I can type again (rsi and carpal tunnel) I intend to get things moving quite quickly. (thank you thermoskin!)

Bettermeans itsself looks quite good, but it does have some annoying bugs, and it not under that much active development (they have open sourced it though)  So I am trying to keep a copy of everything on the wiki, so for the 0.7 release all the testcases will appear on the wiki first then as bettermeans tasks.

This is just incase bettermeans turns out not to be as good as it looks.  I can easially migrate info from the wiki to mantis bug tracker, alternative testcase managment and alternative testing workflow managment.

What would you like the guide to cover?

Hurm, it seems bettermeans wont email you like it claims when new stuff is added so please keep checking back.

Also not a lot of the wiki is stiched together, so please check the page index's as well as the links.  for example there is a lot of content on the main wiki with the dev_ prefix.

What do people think of bettermeans ?

I think I have tried, and given it a go... but bettermeans seems utter shit now

it has lost a shed load of work I had done (although I think this might be my fault), who knows, I cant get any backups off the site, it only half works now, with meta tags appearing all over the place.

I would like to change the setup if others are in agreement.

I would like to build a soultion around Mantis Bug Tracker, It is a great bit of kit, with a number of plugins that will provide the 'lack of leadership, leadership' that bettermeans seemed to be so good for at the start.

I feel that I can put something better together, something that at least works. (from everything to bug logging, documentation, test setups, test runs, test case priorites, acceptance tests, compliance tests, compatibility tests and hopefully some decent security edge cases.)

I will only use open source software and I will hire a few vps' to host it all.

Is it worth my time? Does anyone want to use bettermeans?  I really feel we can get more project traction with anything other than bettermeans.

- as a side note, bettermeans is now open source so if someone wants to fix that up instead... that would be amazing.

Is this project still alive?

I resurrected this post because I recently saw a discussion about bounty donations for development in reddit and some people wanted to contribute to bounties for testing. Original:

I know from experience that testing is a fundamental part of software development, so I hope this project is still alive and moved to another thread/forum/place but if you know this project is completely dead and testing is dying in Bitcoin we must resurrect it.

Testing is usually the biggest bottleneck to fix and improve a released software.

I saw these testing templates in github, are they actually being used?

I don't think it is.

I'm waiting to see Hearn's assurance contract platform, Lighthouse:

I think it might be a rock solid solution to the core dev funding problem. In my opinion it's a user experience issue. If people were presented with an easy cost->deliverable decision - a lot of people would buy in.

For example, cost for user-defined unit notation in QT (BTC, Bits, satoshis, etc.) in the front-end -> .0001btc per user. I would absolutely donate.

I'm not convinced the whole voting for features with coin thing is the way to go. A better system in my opinion would be where users could select from a toggle list the features appealing to them, and drop the ones that weren't.

Just my 2bits
