Hi Guys -
Sorry I didn't see this earlier, but I'm at BoostCon now and I'm planning on
running a "formal trial" on these tools while we have a face to face group.
I'm working with Smartbear and hope to have something available by Tuesday.
In the library in a week we will be looking for a suitable library (we don't
want a pretend one) to up into the tools so we can compare them.
Have one of you'all applied for the crucible community license already for
Boost or do we need to do something?
As for the Hartmut's issue about permanent data, we will need to figure that
out. I don't think we need to run the server -- frankly I'd rather not. As
long as we have control and can export the data and publish into email or
other form at the end of the review that should be sufficient to protect us
from companies going out of business, etc.
