Wed. May 12th, 6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.

Introduction to, and call for feedback on the Fennec testing framework
  speaker: Chad 'Exodist' Granum 

 Chad will demonstrate what he has so far, and request feedback. 

From the fennec docs:
  Fennec - Framework upon which inter-compatible testing
           solutions can be built. 

Fennec provides a solid base that is highly extendable. It allows for 
the writing of custom nestable workflows (like RSPEC), Custom Asserts 
(like Test::Exception), Custom output handlers (Alternatives to TAP), 
Custom file types, and custom result passing (collectors). In Fennec 
all test files are objects. Fennec also solves the forking problem, 
that's it, forking just plain works. 

This framework is what has come from a discussion around modern testing 
in Perl. It is an attempt to address, or make addressable the desires 
and needs expressed therein. It is also an attempt to make glue for all 
future solutions to current and future problems. 

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.
