But how do you write a test, if you just want it to be used for new
functions – e.g. for the upcoming version 4.1 and later?

Do you have to assign the test manually to every version then?

I thought, translating and saving my translated part, would count as a
new version or so ... ;)

"Native language" ... ;) Is there a possibility to see team member $X
from the Germanophone project, where he is testing and the like? I would
like to see some kind of filter to filter testers, so I am able to see,
where they are testing, which test failed on them and the like ... ;)
And I have two further questions:
1. When I edit (translate) a test, there is a pulldown menu at the
bottom of the page, where I can choose between "active" (which seems to
be the default), "disabled" and "draft". What happens, if I use "draft"?
Is this related to the whole test case, or is there a possibility to use
"draft" for my translation?
2. On the top of the page there is a button named "Install as Open Web
App". What is this? To install on a cell phone or the like?

And what is the compiler supposed to do instead? Go shopping for you
and buy more memory?
