This document describes the tests that will be created and used to verify the installation of Fedora 12.

The goals of this plan are to:

  • Organize the test effort
  • Communicate the planned tests to all relevant stake-holders for their input and approval
  • Serve as a base for the test planning for future Fedora 12 releases

Test Strategy

Fedora QA project organizes testing of software as it is released into Rawhide, updates-testing, or as it appears in a supported public release.We will announce test day in fedora-test-list and organize to run test day to co-ordinate focused testing on a specific feature or component in community. These tests include manual or automatic testing.After testing,we will work with developers to fix and close bugs. If you'd like to help making Fedora better,please join us in test day or other Fedora QA activities
