Sometimes the guidelines in our guidance such as Improving Web Application Security, Improving .NET Application Performance and .NET 2.0 Security Guidance are missing some of the important details such as when, why or how. To correct that, we've created a template that explicitly captures the details. We use this template in Guidance Explorer. I'll also be posting .NET Framework 2.0 performance examples that use this new template.
The test cases are simply questions we use to help improve the guidance. The guidelines author can use the test cases to check that they are putting the right information into the template. Reviewers use the test cases as a check against the content to make sure it's useful.
