It seems that the iua-share.upf.edu server which hosts the wiki is down. :-(

Cool, what it is about?

Not really sure on what do you exactly mean.

Same here, sorry.

Normally we do unit tests (white box) for funtional components we can now the 
result, and back2back for complex computations to assert that the results are 
not modified without noticing. In your case, and for chord extraction, we 
should also add some 'fitting' tests (comparing with a ground truth) to 
support b2b when the results differ and it is suposed to be an enhancement.

Is that something i could help you in any way?

It sounds funny ;-) Just keep us informed and we'll try to help you as much as 
we can. Are you planning to do that development on clam svn?
