Software that's been QAed is finally ready to be given its
real test. What's that, beta release? No. It's when the
tech writer tries to use it and discovers the usability
issues that were overlooked (or hidden, or flushed) during
the requirements phase, long before the tech writer was
brought in on the project.

When we make changes to the softw...er, I mean solution, it is "QAed," which is a lot like being "tested."

I almost hate to inject a note of semi-seriousness into this conversation, but I use QAed, as does everybody around here. It's compact and efficient and gets the job done.

The job is to indicate "tested by QA department", as opposed to sanity-checked, or unit-tested, or beta-tested, or tested by Product Verification, or...
All of those are ways that [potential] product gets tested before it ever reaches QA.

If you have a better way, bring it on. I'm happy to oblige.
