A new version of our QA tool for modules is up !

QA team is proud to release version 2.0 RC2 of its QA_Checking Tool for Modules.

What it is for ?
The goal of this tool is to provide :
- module's developers a tool that will help them with checking if their modules are using all xoops's core powerfull features, which documentation, security features, SEO features, etc. their module should have.
- module's testers some ideas about how to validate a module before posting it to community. Could be usefull too for xoops's local support teams or everyone who wants to help devs improving their modules.

What is still to do ?
- Find a full xhtml compliant theme
- Perhaps add some tests for utf8 compatibility ? If Chineese or russian teams could give us some feedbacks on that, would be appreciated !
- Define for SQL query/time standard level
- define which item is mandatory ("must have") or recommended ("should have")
- Set Certification Levels
- Add all items of this tool in a dedicated xoops testing module (example : formulaire)
