Welcome to the Testing Central! Here we can coordinate our efforts, indeed if you aren't in the IRC. To fill the tables just follow the easy understandable guidelines. If you don't understand them please ask in the IRC channel #reactos-testers. Thanks!
Here any developer can ask testers for a test: i.e. a testbox, an application, or a patch. The request can be fullfiled just by a developer. Testers just can fullfil the result of the request. While you are about to test a revision, change the tester field and set the LRT to T+number(i.e. T40020) so other testers know you are testing this revision. After testing and knowing the result change the T to R (i.e. R40020) and update the result field.
- DEV: Developer name who asked for a test
- Request: A short description ( i.e. Test for FF mouse bug)
- Application/TestBox: A link to the application (if needed), please use Wiki syntax.
- Way of Testing: A link to a Bugzilla report where the testing way is described or a short overview how to test. Please try to keep it short.
- Tester: The name of the tester who did the testing.
- LRT (Last Revision Tested): Add a letter before the number, T means currently testing, R means tested
- RES: Results of the test: fail or no fail.
|Dev||Request||App/TestBox||Way of Testing||Tester||LRT||Res:|
|Devname||Short Description||Download it:HERE||Open the menu and chek if the Blabla is still wrong||TestrNam||r40xxx||FAIL|
Here any developer or tester who finds a regression can add a line, so that testers can easily keep track of running regression test and to allow a coordination of efforts. If you discovered the regression then add your Name, the regression description and in which Virtual Machines did you tested it. Also add a revision where the bug was not present and the failing one (if you have that information). If you are regression testing, then add (don't delete others testing efforts) the testing revision that you are going to test in the testing field (add your 4 first nick letters). If there are more testers regtesting you will see the revisions they are going to test. It will help you to choose the most interesting revision. We recommend the binary search. When you finished testing a revision, then update the Working/Failing and the VMW/QEM/VBX. Also delete your testing revision number from the testing.
- Name: The name of the developer or tester who found the regression.
- Regression: Description of the regression, or a link to a Bugzilla report.
- VMWA : "Yes" if the regression happens in VMware, "NO" if doesnt. "NTD" if Not Tested.
- QEMU : "Yes" if the regression happens in QEMU, "NO" if doesnt. "NTD" if Not Tested.
- VBOX : "Yes" if the regression happens in VirtualBox, "NO" if doesnt. "NTD" if Not Tested.
- RHDW : "Yes" if the regression happens in Real Hardware, "NO" if doesnt. "NTD" if Not Tested.
- WRKs: Number of the revision where the bug isn't present.
- Fails: Number of the revision where the bug is failing.
- Testing: Before going to test (indeed before downloading the revision) add your number and your 3 letters here (i.e. 40100VIC).

This section is divided in 2 tables.
- GoldenAPPS: The "GoldenApps Table" tracks the most important working apps which nowadays are working correctly on ReactOS.
- CandidateAPPs: The "CandidateAPPs Table" tracks nonworking apps which must be tracked because their importance. They will be moved to "GoldenApps" when they begin working on ReactOS.
If you see an application, which hasn't been tested with a virtual machine that you have installed, then please test it.Then fill the Virtual Machine column,and if you find any Bugs,add them in the debug description(i.e. QEM+VMW: It fails when copying.). If the three virtual machines have the same issue change the QEM+VMW+VBX to ALL.
- Name: If you are the first testing an application, put your name here. It will be used to contact you, if needed.
- App : Name of the application and the link to download it. The link must be provided.
- Rev: Latest revision where the App was working.
- VMWA: Please add a "Yes" if YOU TESTED it in VMware and works, "NO" if it isnt working,"NTD" if no tested
- QEMU: Please add a "Yes" if YOU TESTED it in Qemu and works,"NO" if it isnt working "NTD" if no tested
- VBOX: Please add a "Yes" if YOU TESTED it in Virtual Box and works,"NO" if it isnt working "NTD" if no tested
- BUG INSTALLING: - Bug during the installation. Format: "Virtual machine or ALL:Description.Bugreport" Please file a bugreport each time you find a bug. Thanks.
- BUG WORKING: - Bug when working with the application. Same Format as for "Bug installing"

What makes an APP Important
The apps being tracked are not being tracked because of only there popularity or because someone likes the app a lot, there are more important reasons.
- The app makes use of some critical part of the operating system, and it may be able to show progression or regression that will affect many other apps.
- The app meets common needs that are needed on most systems.
- The app is needed for development of the operating system.
Because tracking to many apps at this level of detail is difficult you should not just add another app to the list. New additions to this list should be discussed with Fireball,Caemyr,vicmarcal on IRC or there talk page. But before you should ask these questions.
- Will this app test many different parts of the operating system?
- Dose this app do something that will help with testing or Development by tracking its usage?
- Are there no apps that do what this app dose being tracked Already?
- Do you have a good reason for wanting this particular app to be tracked?
If you can honestly answer yes to 2 of the first 3 and the forth then you might consider asking in IRC about adding it.
My app doesn't meet these requirements but i still want it to be tracked
You can track the app yourself. copy the following table to your talk page and fill it out for your use._TODO_NEED_CATEGORY_AND_TEMPLATE_SETUP_
