[Selenium] IDE test for regressing bug https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29310
Hi Benedikt and Marcus,

I had some time and was reading about current issues around MediaWiki. I saw
an issue about tab names - Bug 29310 Namespace tab doesn't handle fallback
the same way as core (breaks nstab) - and created a Selenium regression test
to verify when it is fixed. It is called
javascript-unit-testing-checking-tabs-and-content. It verifies that the tab
names are correct. I also created a test suite - test-suite-check-tabs. The
suite includes a test to check the tabs on the main media wiki site (a test
that passes) and the test -
javscript-unit-testing-checking-tabs-and-content. Would you provided
feedback as to how useful the tests and how to improve them?

Michelle:

Thanks for the test & test suite! Just wanted to update you that it seems
like fewer and fewer MediaWiki developers are interested in Selenium tests,
and many are moving to other tools for automatic testing:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Unit_testing

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Test_framework_deployment#Status:_Permanent_hiatus

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Selenium_Framework#Selenium.27s_uses_.26_flaws

Would you be interested in writing test suites or tests for some of these
other tools?
