Announcing the Atlanta PHP TestFest event!

The TestFest is an event that aims at improving the code coverage of the test suite for the PHP language itself. As part of this event, local User Groups (UG) are invited to join the TestFest.

Aside from having to opportunity to help in improving the language itself, we will also raffle off 10 elePHPants to submitters. Every submission (test) that is considered helpful receives one entry into the raffle. Furthermore, people that show they are capable of writing tests entirely on their own may be given official accounts with direct commit access to and an email address. As a result participants should also read over the general guidelines for getting CVS access.
