Tests plans and results, along with all other project documentation,

Mr Wagner, in 'more than a few shops where I have worked' such things were
not always available; that was the reason to print them out.
It's hard to believe they don't have a network connecting desktop PCs. Make a public
directory on any machine. Use directories to create a framework.
You appear to miss completely the point of English having tenses.
Mr Plinston, Mr Wagner might benefit from sitting this one out... but he
perhaps he could have the next tense.
'worked' may refer to 1972, which would have made your reference to
'desktop PCs', 'network' and 'public directory' rather mystifying to
them at that time. I am not sure how Doc would know what they do at
this, or any intermediate, time.
I received a private email about this, saying that I didn't specify I was
referring to times prior to the PC's invention... my response, naturally
enough, was that I didn't specify I was referring to times after it,
It might be seen as moderately amusing what has happened when someone who
frequently disparages 'the way things were done' confronts an example of
'how things were'.
'What kind of foolishments are these? This IF is coded across screens and
screens, why wasn't it broken down into an EVALUATE and some in-line
'The code-base was laid down in 1975, a decade before those features were
available... and the shop didn't start using those features until the Y2K
conversion in 1998 and nobody since then has authorised the budget to
rewrite and re-test it.'
