Many times I run into people who are looking for good practices on setting up their Domino environment, and how to setup and document their application lifecycle.
Well my employer Teamstudio has created a Lotus Domino/Notes set of policy guides to assist with this.
They are product/vendor neutral and are freely downloadable here.
They cover Requirements, Design, Development, Testing, and Production.
* Request Management (REQ 10)
* Requirements Gathering (REQ 20)
* Requirements Alignment (REQ 30)
* Requirements Prioritization (REQ 40)
* Design Specification (DES 10)
* Test Planning (DES 20)
* Design Authorization (DES 30)
* Design Implementation (DES 40)
* Coding Practices (DEV 10)
* Source Code Management (DEV 20)
* Version Management (DEV 30)
* Unit Testing (DEV 40)
* Application Testing (TES 10)
* User Acceptance Testing (TES 20)
* Application Delivery (PRO 10)
* Security Management (PRO 20)
* User Management (PRO 30)
* Application Management and Monitoring (PRO 40)
* Data Management (PRO 50)
* Agent Management (PRO 60)
* Infrastructure Management (PRO 70)

Look them over and get them. You will not be sorry.
