Hi Markus,

happy to hear from you!
UI testing topic sounds for me very interessting. It will be great to know
how it works and how can I add more test.
The other issue is that I did not receive the response from Xisco in my
email. I saw it the mailing list archive after I read your message.

For Testlink I think an only Admin can  create an account for me.

[1]  : Account is created and works

[2] : already read.

[3] account needed

[4] read


[6] still going through the
topic under this page
