Testing Xfce

Good software does not stay good all by itself. It needs careful development and testing to keep the quality at high standards. Many components have unit-tests, to automatically test backend features of libraries and such.

Some tests can be difficult to automate, and still need human interaction. This section describes a set of test-cases that can be manually run on different xfce components to validate if they are working correctly.
