There are additions that QA could now start adding. Some of the ideas are:
Add the preloading repo step
right click on a widget to open a dialog with the widget's attributes for verification. create a query for verification based on the attributes selected so not all 80-100 attributes of the widget get verified by default. That makes the testcases more brittle.
another option to solve the verification problem is maybe have a floating panel while you are recording. As attributes get clicked on they get written into the panel which can then be checked off (or not) for verification. You should easily be able to turn them off and on.
the attributes being selected for verification get noted down during recording and get verified during playback.
we should atleast come up with the verifiable strings for next week
