Introduce required testing

Registered by kevin gunn on 2013-02-26

Unity Next UI is an evolution in the Ubuntu shell to achieve convergence across multiple form, tablet, desktop, tv. The effort to get there will leverage the Ubuntu Touch developer preview. The Ubuntu Touch preview was written in such as a way as to be the seed for the next genertion, it is not demo code. As such, with any focused development, once created it needs testing. This blueprint is an effort to capture the testing needed to enhance & maintain quality of a the Unity Next shell. Primarly, this blueprint captures testing required to cover UnityNext. Which consists of shell core, indicators, notifications, launcher, lens, dash, hud.

Please check this list of components & there analysis wrt testing (e.g. tested, not tested, ignore, will be don't write a test yet)
also, please mark your name as working in the doc as well as adding a line item to this blueprint

Acceptance criteria for March / ubuntu-13.04-month-5:
#1) Provide 75%+ coverage of all the UnityNext code
#2) Have Continuous Integration testing for autolanding code.

Acceptance criteria for April / ubuntu-13.04-month-6:
#1) Current test coverage is ~30%, increase to ~50% as reported in unity-phablet-qmluitests coverage on jenkins

Acceptance criteria for May / ubuntu-13.05:
#1) tbd

Unit tests:
run "make test" or "make check" to execute them. Find them in tests/unittests/ and plugins/<pluginname>/tests

QML components tests:
Tests each internal qml component separately.
run "make qmluitests" to execute them. Find them in tests/qmluitests

Autopilot tests:
run "make autopilot" to execute them. Find them in tests/autopilot/

Unity test requirements (coming out of long email thread)

removing some items as they are covered under other blueprints because they are "new" activities (e.g. notifications) or will be "overcome by events" through the natural course of our development (e.g. design dash iterations & backend api changes).
This bp was about adding coverage for existing assetts that will continue to be employed by the phablet build....
