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

The QA sections have been informally divided among the Q & A Editors. Would you be interested in maintaining the new section, were it created?

    I'm surprised, but after a little consideration: sure, I would be interested. I would like to know more about what QandAEditors do from day to day, though.

    Also, my background is in system/functional testing and theory, not unit/CPAN testing. I am not at all familiar with the Test::* modules-- but I'm learning, slowly. That might be a factor?

    This is one Q & A Editor's perspective...

    Long ago, there was a flurry of Q&A work to do. There was a steady stream of posts made in the Q & A section that really belonged in SoPW. Now, QA Editors have a nifty tool to move those posts in one fell swoop. There were a lot of posts that needed cleanup, many duplicates, etc...

    Nowadays, things are pretty stable. I like to check the new questions and answers from the Newest Nodes page (BTW, those still show up in Newest Nodes, right? I haven't seen any lately), cleaning up anything I see. Vote up the good ones, kill anything ridiculous...

    If you're really interested, petition a god or someone who can bless you into the position, pointing them to some of your most helpful, quality-conscious, community-oriented posts and see what happens.
