  • Michael Carioso: after every commit, nightly, when?
    • Depends on the Selenium Framework of WMF.
  • Karima Rafes: how to check exported RDF?
    • BK: Testing RDF functionality should be possible using Selenium Tests as with PHP, all read/write functionalities of PHP are possible.
  • Michael Erdmann: nightly build on server without browser possible, without GUI?
    • BK: No, computer running selenium-server.jar for being remote controlled needs GUI/Windowmanager and Browsers. Tested SMW can be located on another server. Also, the tests can be started from another server.
