#REDIRECT [[Proven_tester]]
The Proven Testers are a dedicated group of the [[QA|Fedora Quality Assurance]] Community who work towards making sure packages in the [[Critical_Path_Packages|Critical Path]] are not broken in [[Releases/Branched|Fedora Branched]].
 
 
 
== How to Join ==
 
 
 
The following steps are imperative to join the QA Proven Testers:

|'''Step'''||'''Task'''||'''Details'''
 
|-
 
|1 || Sign up for the [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/login Fedora Account System]. || You must have a FAS account before you participate here.
 
|-
 
|2 || Pick a Mentor!|| As the interested QA Community member, it is your responsibility to request a mentor from the [https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-qa/ Fedora QA Trac] instance by filing a new ticket.
 
|-
 
|3 || Apply for Proven Testers|| Details of the procedure to apply for the Proven Testers QA group are below.
 
|-
 
 
 
|}
 
 
 
Once these steps are complete and your mentor confirms you have demonstrated an understanding of QA process and community, your application for approval to the Critical Path Wranglers will be brought up for review with the current Critical Path Wranglers. Once approved by the Critical Path Wranglers, you will be able to apply for, and be approved for, the [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/group/view/proventester ProvenTesters group] within [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts FAS.]
 
 
 
The [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/group/view/qa QA group] within [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts FAS] will grant the ability to add what is known as "weighted" karma inside of [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates Bodhi] to the [[Critical_Path_Packages|Critical Path]] packages within Fedora [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/Branched Fedora Branched]. Karma that is "weighted" is known as such because each package that requires it must have, at minimum, a quota of weighted karma in addition to karma added by all other QA Community members. This means that everyone can offer up karma to the packages within [[Critical_Path_Packages|Critical Path]] but a certain number of Proven Testers karma is required to go stable.
 
 
 
== Proven Testers Mentor Candidates ==
 
A Mentor candidate is any current Proven Tester, an interested QA Community Member who would like to become sponsored must request a current Proven Tester as their Mentor as part of their trac ticket if they have a preference of who mentors them. Once the candidate Mentor accepts the interested QA Community Member's request this Mentor will oversee the interested member and help them work within the Critical Path QA efforts, policies, and procedures.
 
 
 
== Proven Testers Testing Processes and Procedures ==
 
FIXME: Should probably have some content here, potentially a link to things such as AdamW's new Update testing policy (once its written/finalized).
