About this pageEdit

"Test script" is a term of art for software testing; it is not an automated test, but a script for human beings to follow when doing a comprehensive test of the MediaWiki software.

If you need to, you can think of it as an automated script written in the English programming language, which runs on the English-speaking Web user operating system.


SectionsEdit

The script is divided into sections based on functionality. This makes it easier to test parts of the software in relative isolation.
