Hello QAers,

One big project we have coming up is testing the Visual Editor[1].  This is
the main subject of Rachel's Outreach Program for Women project[2].

VisualEditor still has a number of interesting bugs not yet fixed[3].

So apropos of VisualEditor, I would like to discuss two main themes:

1) Discovering issues with VE right away by manual/exploratory testing.
2) Supporting Rachel and her OPW project for browser test automation for

Rachel, I'm sure you've seen it, but I made a spike, a simple test that
exercises VE and checks for the correct result at
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/66050/  I'd like to discuss creating the
next appropriate tests here on the QA list if that's OK with everyone.

And I'd like to suggest that anyone interested in testing something in an
exploratory way spend some time with VisualEditor.  The more information we
have about how VE behaves in various browsers, the better off we are.
