We don't have anything specifically on software testing. The closest we
have is a "Software Release Practice HOWTO" by esr. So there's a place
for it.

I'm curious about the Speech Recognition HOWTO. I wrote some speech
recognition routines in the 80's using neural nets, for a payphone os.
Essentially Embedded systems with 8k EEPROM and 8k RAM. So it was quite
a challenge just getting it to differentiate "yes" from "no" from "dog"
or "cat". I don't have any idea about the current state of the art, but
am very interested in seeing where the field has gone since then.
