4/1 -- Reminder for Requirements Verification Plan

Just a reminder to read the Project page carefully for the requirements verification plan directions. For every requirement (B or A) I would like to see the name of a test or collection of tests to run, and then you should have sequence models, pseudocode, or actual code of those tests available. Your sequence models can be hand-drawn, and are by far the easiest way to prototype your tests.

I use the Requirements Verification Plan to help determine what A requirements I will finally select for your final release, so you will need to have a plan for how to verify every potential A requirement, even if you do not end up doing it, so I can evaluate which ones are the highest difficulty to perform and therefore assign your efforts fairly, without over-burdening you with busy work. Good luck, everyone!
