Could somebody please explain what you are expecting as output from the:
Test scripts, example scripts and documentation
The idea page was a bit confusing.

Ok. Just did this on Skype, but it does not hurt for the others that may not be following our Skype channel to paste the answer here:

Expected outcome of this project: improved current documentation, clearly written examples, better coverage for regression testing with new regression scripts, some new documentation of the areas we did not cover (say, tutorial only covers a really narrow part of Orange).

There was also a question (Skype) on what is the difference between example and test scripts.

Example scripts == scripts that are included in the documentation
Test scripts == scripts that are used for regression testing

Essentially, there could be much overlap between the two categories, but extra regression scripts are also needed that test a certain part of Orange's functionality and where the code is either boring or non-informative and does not fit the documentation purposes.
