End users are those people, who use AutoQA just to see the result of a particular test. They will probably be developers (of other software) at the same time.
+
  
If you work with development version of Fedora, AutoQA results page will inform you if the up-to-date Rawhide repository is broken or not, if the Rawhide is installable and bootable, etc. If you maintain some packages for Fedora, you can see there if there were some problems detected with latest updates of your packages or not. We plan to provide means of notifications to the package maintainer if such events happens.

Interested in writing tests?
Developers are those people, who have intentions to work on AutoQA itself or want to contribute another test for it.

The internal layout of AutoQA itself is described in [[AutoQA architecture]]. If you plan to write a new test, please see [[Writing AutoQA Tests]]. Instructions for installing and setting up AutoQA on your own machine are available in [[Installing AutoQA]].

* Read [[Writing AutoQA Tests]] and [[Verifying AutoQA tests]]

* Should your test require a new method to trigger testing, read [[Writing AutoQA Events and Watchers]] ''(optional)''

* Integrate your test with AutoQA - [[Install and configure AutoQA]]
