6+==============
7+Manual Testing
8+==============
9+
10+Outline
11+-------
12+Sometimes it is not possible to easily make an automated test for some
13+use-cases. However just because something isn't easily tested automatically
14+doesn't mean that there isn't value in creating a test for it, just that the
15+test needs to be executed by a person until it is converted into an automated
16+test.
17+
18+
19+Format
20+------
21+Manual tests take the format of text files in this directory (the manual-test
22+one). These files are formatted using `reStructured Text`_. A very
23+comprehensive `quick reference`_ is available.
24+
25+.. _reStructured Text: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReStructuredText
26+.. _quick reference: http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docs/user/rst/quickref.html
27+
28+Tests have a header, steps to follow, and an expected outcome, as demonstrated
29+by the following example:
30+
31+There can be multiple tests in a single file, but they should all be related,
32+and the filename should indicate the tests it contains.
33+
34+
35+Test Dash
36+---------
37+This test shows that the dash appears when the super key is pushed.
38+
39+#. Start with a clear screen
40+#. Press the <super> key
41+
42+Outcome
43+ The dash appears, and focus is in the search box. The icons on the laucher
44+ are desaturated except for the ubuntu button at the top. The icons in the
45+ panel go white.
46+
47+
48+Directory Structure
49+-------------------
50+It is expected that as we grow a number of manual tests, we will use
51+directories to organise them.
