What do I look for in a post? Clarity and Contribution.

NO vote: If the post is clear, but makes no contribution OR if the post is unclear, but makes a contribution (though I will try to improve the clarity either by comments or direct edit).

UP vote: If the post is clear and makes a contribution.

DOWN vote: If the post is unclear and makes no contribution (though I will try to see if I've missed something by commenting).

Do you do QA before issuing the hotfix? It's a release. If not of the full product, then of the hotfix.

comment Organising staggered user story in Scrum
@BryanOakley: Ya... "final product" and "software" doesn't necessarily compute to me. The OP used "release_s_". To me, that means each user story will be in a "final" product (i.e. not necessarily all stories in all releases).

"Could be" and "aren't" are two different things.

Tempted to -1 for your first sentence. Of course user stories are descriptions of the final product! They serve zero purpose if they are not. I think you mean something different from what you've said.

comment Pairwise testing, not possible to say which combinations is faulty?
I've used this technique to find a particularly hard-to-resolve embedded device bug. We had several different possibilities, and enumerated a very similar set of possible scenarios. We ran 9 of the devices overnight with the suggested setup parameters, and BAM! we had isolated our problem very quickly.
