Wikitcms is a term used to refer to Fedora's use of this Mediawiki instance as an ad hoc test management system ('TCMS' stands for 'Test Case Management System', but that precise initialism is in fact quite rarely used). It is also the name of a Python module which provides an interface to the 'system'.

Background

The use of the Fedora wiki to track test results dates back to at least the page QA/FC6Test2TreeTesting - at that time, the Fedora wiki was a MoinMoin instance, not this Mediawiki instance. The rough form of a table with different tests as the rows and results as columns is visible even there. Since then, this basic format has been gradually elaborated.
