GNOME Desktop Testing - Project annoucement

We are proud to announce that a new GNOME team has been created, focused on desktop testing automation. If you have ever wondered how could you test your application writing scripts that mimic what a normal user would do, join us in this new effort.

We have a mailing list, a wiki page with documentation and a SVN module with the initial work that we have done, but we need more people to get involve to make GNOME better and better.

Please, join now the GNOME Desktop Testing team!

Still not sure? Here you will find a small how-to on how to run the available examples. Just give it a go!

A big thanks to Christian Rose for setting up the Mailing List and GNOME SVN a/c for us. I have really bugged Owen Taylor / Federico all the time on IRC. Thanks to both of them answering all my queries, all the time :)

Test automation is very good.
Why bug the eyeballs when computers can catch the bugs themselves.

I didn't quite understand it after looking at all of the pages.

How exactly does it function? How can I set this up for my gtk app?
