I’ve been looking for a description of how plugins are being tested and so far I can’t seem to find any methodology. Simple statements like “it works for me on X” are hardly conclusive, let alone best practice.
So does the community have an outline of best testing practices and/or a suitable method for testing? Or objective standards/metrics against which plugins can be tested?
At the very least, if CP is to be seen as a sound business-oriented product then it seems to me that the community needs to be setting and maintaining standards which new plugins need to meet, especially where plugins depend on other plugins or where they can radically impact the behaviours or performances of other plugins or the core.
Note: I beg forgiveness in advance: I’ve only spent about an hour browsing the topics here so may well have missed earlier discussions of these issues.
