in reply to Request for new Q&A category: Testing?

It would be fairly easy to add a Testing section to Catagorized Questions and Answers. I wonder if it might be more effective as a new catagory in the Tutorials section though. If it were added as a Q&A section, do we have enough people with testing Q/A stuff to quickly populate the new section? Remember, when you post a question to Q&A, you should be prepared to also post an answer as well. Q&A is about answers to common questions. If you have a specific question and don't know the answer, that's a Seekers of Perl Wisdom node.

Tutorials, on the other hand, would just need one or two people to write something good to get the new catagory off the ground.

I don't know what the right answer is. Let's hear some opinions, and then we can get it implemented if there's enough support for it.

    I hadn't thought about Tutorials, but I can see that it would be convenient.

    The testing disciplines are distinct enough to justify separate treatment of, for instance, UI tests and coverage tests. This would be easier in Tutorials than Q&A.

    I'm still not certain that there will be enough interest to justify changing PM, but I could certainly contribute things on UI-testing and theory that have no real home today.
