'''AutoQA''' is an automated test system for Fedora.  Its design is simple: when certain events occur, AutoQA launches automated tests.  Events that AutoQA monitors include:
  
For AutoQA to respond to an event, someone needs to write a "hook" for that event. The first step in creating a new hook is, obviously, to define the event it responds to.

* New packages in the [http://koji.fedoraproject.org koji build system]
 +
* New Fedora updates submitted through [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates bodhi]
 +
* Updated package repositories for [[Releases/Rawhide|rawhide]], the current [[Releases/Branched|branched]] release ({{FedoraVersion|long|next}}), and previous Fedora releases
 +
* Updated installable images of the current [[Releases/Branched|branched]] release ({{FedoraVersion|long|next}})
  
For example, the <code>post-repo-update</code> hook is triggered whenever a Fedora repo is updated. Obviously, any test that will run in response to this event will need to know the URL of the repo that was just updated. (This is a <i>required</i> argument.) Certain repos can't be used properly without other "parent" repos (for example, the Fedora 11 <code>updates</code> repo isn't useful without also knowing the address of the main Fedora 11 repo). So a list of "parent repos" is an <i>optional argument</i> to the tests.

  • New Fedora updates submitted through bodhi
  • Updated package repositories for rawhide, the current branched release (Fedora 21), and previous Fedora releases
  • Updated installable images of the current branched release (Fedora 21)
