Article mergers[edit]

Software testing[edit]

A large section of this article was an incomplete copy of software testing. To prevent a lot of redundancy, this article should probably not spend more than a paragraph summarizing "software testing", if it needs to at all. I merged the redundant material completely for now.

The article software quality management says that SQA and SQM are often used as synonyms. It sounds like these are really the same thing by different names, and probably only need one article. I've marked them for merger. -- Beland (talk) 03:51, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

You were the one who made that copy. Thanks for being bold. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 05:02, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
I didn't make it; I moved it here from quality assurance, since it was clearly software-specific (and would be equally redundant there). But it has since been merged. -- Beland (talk) 23:25, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

This article seems to have stabilized with a separate definition from software testing, and the merge tags have been removed. -- Beland (talk) 23:25, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Software Quality Management[edit]

  • SQA and SQM are completely different topics, so don't think it warrants a merger, but this page can certainly be detailed better and probably has more in common with Software testing, although shouls include aspects of requirements engineering, estimation and planning which are all part of the Quality Assurance process and include aspects of software testing.

  • From reviewing both articles, it sort of looks like SQM is a neologism for SQA. ~KvnG 14:20, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
