There is no revision control, not even for the SUT

Questions

Does development have revision control?
Who manages revision control? Development?

Resolving Patterns

Most recommended:

  • GOOD DEVELOPMENT PROCESS: Use good development practices for test code; the same as developers (should) use for production code
  • SHARE INFORMATION: Ask for and give information to managers, developers, other testers and customers
