[This document is a template of a Test Plan document for a project. The template
includes instructions to the author, boilerplate text, and fields that should be replaced
with the values specific to the project.

the document author, or describes the intent, assumptions and context for
content included in this document.
Blue italicized text enclosed in angle brackets (<text>) indicates a field that
should be replaced with information specific to a particular project.
Text and tables in black are provided as boilerplate examples of wording and
formats that may be used or modified as appropriate to a specific project. These

are not mandatory formats.
