This is a good start. You're happy with FEST?
I just created a directory in the jedit svn, called "tests", that
should include this document (but preferably in a text or markup
format, so it can be easily edited and tracked), as well as the test
scripts that you and your colleague develop. If I have some time, I'll
try them out with FEST on my end and also add to them.
Good idea, driving the test scripts from Ant, since we already use
that to build jedit.
If you need svn write permissions to access that project, contact me
with your sf.net usernames.
