8 As a tester - not AT at Gentoo - say that you are right. In the
9 development job that activity is that which should/must be well
10 documented or communicated to provide solid and trustworthy
11 information. Nowadays, I experience that the line between developers
12 and tester are getting thinner and thinner and there are development
13 methods, such as DAD, which support this process.
15 On the other hand, testing activity is the safety belt which keep the
16 quality on a certain level which produces the tribute of the users
17 which will be the fuel for the further job.
