Does it need to be a game? Or can it be a website?

comment Keeping automation code away from application source code
Could you be a bit more specific about your branching strategy? Is your code in the trunk a type of Prod branch? Do you do any deploys from the trunk?

Sam- thanks for the input, I'm the one that upvoted your response to deployment testing :) It was reviewing your response and this blog that made me begin searching for an open source option.

comment Testing an application under continuous development
Craig- I find your comment interesting. It sounds like you are a one man quality gate for the entire system and a defect in the system points end up pointing to you. This is a bad way to look at things. On my team we look at Prod defects as how can the team prevent these? Not the tester missed it or Dev coded it poorly. Again just something to think about, I know how hard it is to push process changes when the business drives development.
