Even though I didn't like the Borat movie very much, I still like to use his line, Great success!. But on to more important things! ;-)

Last weekend, we — the Berlin PHP UserGroup (and Christian Weiske from Leipzig) — took part in what some people labeled the European PHP TestFest 2009. In a nutshell, we were writing tests to cover different PHP extensions.

Here's the outcome (numbers courtesy of Falko Menge):

Extension  Code Coverage    Line Coverage            New Tests
gettext    62.8 -> 98.8 %    54 ->  85 /  86 lines   19
intl/idn   11.6 -> 81.4 %     5 ->  35 /  43 lines    3
sockets    32.9 -> 70.5 %   282 -> 604 / 857 lines   23
posix      47.9 -> 70.0 %   147 -> 215 / 307 lines   16
xsl        67.3 -> 77.1 %   350 -> 401 / 520 lines   19

Our tests are available on a github repository and synced to the offical TestFest subversion repository.

I think we had a lot of fun, even recruited a couple newbies :-) to the whole testing thing. I want to extend my gratitude once more to everyone (Tim, Moritz, Robin, Falko, Christian, Jan and Florian) who showed up and helped us to improve PHP.

Great effort!
