Qualification Test Documents

Note on document numbering: Core test document numbering conventions have been revised to clarify that the documents cover all active Core Specification versions, not just the latest version. Rather than referencing a specific Core version (e.g. BB.ICS.5.2.0), they now reference the publication number (e.g. BB.ICS.p22).
