What is critical path?

What are Quality Assurance Proven Packagers?
The Proven Packagers are a dedicated group of the Fedora Quality Assurance Community who work towards making sure packages in the Critical Path are not broken in Fedora CURRENT_RELEASE+1.
The following steps are imperative to join the QA Proven Packagers:
|1||Sign up for the Fedora Account System.||You must have a FAS account before you participate here.|
|2||Complete the CLA through the Account System.||It is compulsory to sign the CLA (contributor licence agreement) for participating in this group.|
|3||Get involved in the QA community!||First step is definitely to get involved. The Quality Assurance team is always looking for eager community members to help contribute towards the over all Quality of the Fedora Project.|
|4||Pick a Mentor!||A Mentor candidate is any current Proven Packager, an interested QA Community Member who would like to become sponsored must request a current Proven Packager as their Mentor. 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.|
|5||Apply for Proven Packagers||Details of the procedure to apply for the Proven Packagers QA group are below.|

Once these steps are complete and your mentor feels you are versed enough in the processes and methods of the QA 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 ProvenPackager group within FAS.
