Test Cases

Icon Status (progress and quality of test-case)
stargold documentation good enough for users to run simulations and contribute results
stargold stargold recommended test-case, some reference solutions available
stargold stargold stargold recommended test-case, reference solutions confirmed and concensus reached
stargold stargold stargold lock Case now thoroughly checked and locked as it is used as reference in QA procedures
tip suggestion for new test case, help welcome
wrench under construction, help wanted
question clarifications needed, help wanted
stop some defects in reference data suspected, test case might be dropped
