[edit] Fedora Quality Assurance

Welcome to the Fedora QA project page. Fedora QA is the project which covers all testing of the software that makes up Fedora. It's our goal to continually improve the quality of Fedora releases and updates.

[edit] Activities

The Quality Assurance project is engaged in the following activities:

Pending and completed tasks are listed in Trac and, for tooling, Phabricator.

[edit] Get Involved

We're always eager to have new contributors to the QA project, no matter your experience level. If you'd like to get involved with helping to make Fedora better, read the What can I do? page to find out how to join in with QA activities. There are tasks available for every level of expertise and available spare time.

If you'd like to get involved with Fedora but QA doesn't sound like the group for you, think about joining another Fedora project instead.

[edit] Communicate

QA project meetings are held Mondays at 16.00 UTC in the fedora meeting channel on IRC. Everyone is welcome to come along, especially if you're thinking of getting involved with QA and would like to ask some questions first.

General info on QA meetings such as topics for future meetings and records from previous meetings can be found at QA/Meetings.

  • Attend QA IRC meeting on time (if you join the channel at a different time, you'll find another group's meeting)
  • Talk to other QA members on our permanent IRC channel #fedora-qa[?]
  • test is the mailing list for the QA project
  • test-announce is the mailing list for QA project announcements - this is a lower-traffic list, if you want to keep up with important events but find the test@ volume too high
  • qa-devel is the mailing list for QA tooling development
