This document describes the tests that will be created and used to verify the functions/components 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 uses Test Day andMilestone Install Test to organize testing

  • Test Day organizes testing of software as it is released into Rawhide, updates-testing, or as it appears in a supported public release. Test Day will focus on testing on a specific feature or component of Fedora.
  • Milestone Install Test verifies installation against Fedora 12 milestone Release Candidate builds on different hardware platforms. These tests include manual or automatic testing(cobbler/koan,etc..).
  • After testing,QA will work with developers to fix,close bugs and give corresponding feedback. If you'd like to help making Fedora better,please join us in Fedora 12 Test Day or other Fedora QA activities
