Eternal Plugfest

An ODF community and testing server

Open Document Format has been tested at so-called Plugfests over the years. At these plugfests compatibility between ODF implementations is tested. This started out as a manual process with a wiki and USB sticks. ODFAutoTests have increased the amount of testing that can be done at a plugfest. More testing could be plugfests lasted longer. To make that possible, a web server is being developed.

The web server builds on the ideas of OfficeShots and ODFAutoTests. The current version is implemented in Haskell with the Yesod framework. The talk will go into the workflow of testing and how it can be implemented in a web page.
