There is certainly some overlapping interest in these testing aspects between the QA SIG and the self-healing SIG and hence collaboration between both SIGs is crucial. 

That's fantastic - thank you so much! 

>One remark regarding tools and frameworks: I consider the true value of a SIG to be a place for talking about methodologies and best practices: What do we need to test? What are the challenges? How can we approach this across communities? The tools and frameworks are important and we should investigate which tools are available, how good they are, how much they fit a given purpose, but at the end of the day they are tools meant to enable well designed testing methodologies. 

Agreed 100%.

Yes agreed again, this is a strong case for collaboration between the 
self-healing and QA SIGs.  In Dublin we also discussed the idea of the 
self-healing and API SIGs collaborating on the related topic of health 
check APIs.
