Mike put a lot of effort into the unit testing section, and I'd done an additional section on functional testing -- testing against fixtures, such as test databases, sandbox services, etc. # Repository layout. Mike actually talked about this briefly, but we'd intended to show some designs for subversion layouts, and how to create and use branches and tags. # Subversion hook scripts. We mentioned their existence, and some uses, but we'd hoped to show how to add these to your repository, and some sample scripts. # Mailman. How to setup archived mailing lists. # Capistrano.
