For the 3.0 release, The Bug Genie team has cooperated closely with Latvian company Eptron to provide testing and source code analysis during the development leading up to the initial release.
The Bug Genie lead developer Daniel André Eikeland had a talk with lead software tester Kaspar Bērziņš from Eptron about how it's been like.
We've never looked back to any other bug tracking system since
Since we started our testing effort back when v3 had not even reached its beta stage yet, it was quite hard to create automated tests for it - features were always changing. Once we got to first Betas, I started to use a tool called Sahi to perform automatic regression tests on previously found issues. I also used a tool called Wapiti to perform automatic vulnerability scans.
The Bug Genie testing has been very intense (I also had some health problems during the testing period) so unfortunately, no documentation was created for our testing procedues except the issues registered in the online tracker. I wish we had more resources dedicated to this project, because The Bug Genie is a quite big system. I do expect more issues to come up during the first weeks after v3 final release, but I believe we did a very good effort to deliver the best version of The Bug Genie so far.
