comment Why is XML not called EML?
Yeah, so? That's not the norm outside of mathematics. X has been used to define the unknown for quite some time. Other letters, not so much. C.f. X-ray, Generation X, etc.

Because 'X' used in this context can be shorthand for 'fill in the blank.' A variable, as it were.

Well, one of them likes pina coladas and long walks on the beach. Seriously, what difference does it make? Your suggestions, whether based on a hunch or practical experience, are valuable, helpful directly or not. If you have an idea as to how a non-developer who is on your project can be part of BDD, then by all means, post it. It's not like I'm going to lose my job because you clicked the Post Answer button.

Think less about how the .feature files are created (they have to be, so they're a given) and more about the workflow for the BA. Do I set up a BA with git access so they can pull the source down and edit the .feature files? Do I let them write the scenarios in Jira and then someone(?) manually creates the files? That's what I'm looking for. In other words, tips (perhaps based on experience) of how to make this work beyond the dev's POV.

Yes, that is all the stuff I know. That is why I'm asking for suggestions on precisely how to do that.

That's part of using SpecFlow. They could create the .feature files in Notepad for all I care. That's part of my question. How can I make it easier?

comment Is it OK to put a link to Q&A sites in a program's comments?
Not a bad question, but belongs on meta.
