the top of the article. This FAQ is archived as sources-test-faq.

This article addresses:

o What was comp.sources.testers created for ?
o Why not use alt.sources ?
o How do I get added of deleted from the list of testers ?
o What comp.sources.testers is *NOT* for.
o Where do I test my news software at ?

----------------------------------------------------
Subject: What was comp.sources.testers created for ?

CHARTER:

The purpose of this newsgroup is to give authors of software packages a
place to post in hopes of finding people willing to test their packages.
No source code should ever be posted to comp.sources.testers.

comp.sources.testers should be used as a first stage before posting to
any of the source newsgroups, including alt.sources, comp.sources.misc,
comp.sources.games, comp.sources.unix, the various machine specific source
groups, and even comp.sources.reviewed.

Most of the subject lines should look like

Subject: Need beta testers for ppmtovcr, another portable bitmap converter

or perhaps final announcements like

Subject: Done with gamma testing for ppmtovcr, posted to c.s.misc

along with acknowledgments. Cross posts into comp.sources.testers are fine
when there's an appropriate subject group. Topics like

Subject: What metrics do you use for evaluating object-oriented programs?

belong in comp.software-eng, not comp.sources.testers.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Why not use alt.sources ? It seems to have been serving
the community well.

There are those that would *disagree*... Initially, alt.sources was
established as a place where the net could post sources that was not
moderated, such as comp.sources.unix. Its usage has evolved into a
group where authors post beta software in hopes that people take the
time to compile/debug them. The author then hopes to hear of problems
from those who took the time to look at their packages. This approach
forces all problems to be aired in public. Communication with the author
before beta testing begins is not how alt.sources works today, flooding
the net with alpha/beta software is.

Blasting sources out everywhere is not for c.s.testers. The idea is to
put people together to work towards improving a package. Authors may
not want to post alpha (read that as knowingly buggy) code to the world.
Many times the author of a package would like to have a small group of
people actively working on a program. Often the author sets up a mailing
list for the group members to use to pass ideas and bug fixes back and
forth. It is much easier to post "oops, I was dumb" messages to an
isolated, much smaller, and more interactive group than to post messages
of this type to the world.

Another problem with alt.sources is that many sites do not take the
newsgroup because they are on the end of slow links which must pay to
receive news. With comp.sources.testers, a site of this type can
receive this low volume newsgroup and still be a part of the potential
beta testing community.

And as for the signal to flame ratio in alt.sources... Never mind. :-)

--------------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Is there a list of people willing to try things out ?

The following have offered to be Beta Testers on a request by request
basis. Do not expect that they will always have the time or interest
to be a tester. Their inclusion on this list is strictly voluntary
and they should be commended for their contributions.

Systems: WFW 3.11 with 8 megs ram on a 486 at home remotely
connected to my office by PC Anywhere (DOS); Apple Quadras
and Power PCs connected through Appletalk and a DOS 5.0
system networked through Novell 3.11.
The Apples are prepped for graphics production; but the DOS
network is more suited toward text production. Memory is 2
megs. Most of the machines are 386s.

Subject: How do I get added or deleted from the list of testers ?

Send email to:
tes...@sparky.sterling.com

Make sure that you clearly indicate you want to be included or removed
from the list. Please include the types of platforms that you have
available for testing. I will from time to time contact you to assure
that you still wish to be included on the list.

----------------------------------------------------
Subject: What comp.sources.testers is *NOT* for.

- c.s.testers is not a place to post test messages to see if your news
software is properly configured. See the next section for more info.

- c.s.testers is not a place to advertise your capabilities or experiences
as a tester if you are interested in testing for cash payment. The
group was formed to provide a forum for volunteer testers wishing to
contribute in improving packages that interested them. If you are
looking to test for profit, post your messages to one of the appropriate
misc.jobs groups.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Where do I test my news software at ?

Please do *not* post test messages to comp.sources.testers !

If you wish to test your news software, create a local group and try
using that first. When that works, locate a regional group to test
posting articles to the world. Ask your upstream feed for the name
of an appropriate regional newsgroup near you. If you really feel
that you must post a test message that needs to go to most every news
system worldwide, use misc.test, or news.test. Just remember, messages
posted to the world costs other sites money.
