The QA team develops tools to make testing easier and more repeatable. Developing open source quality assurance tools is complex and challenging stuff at the cutting edge of the field. Contact Tim Flink if you're up to the challenge of building new tools for Fedora QA.
- Taskotron is our current in-development framework for automatically executing a number of Fedora related tests. Both Fedora infrastructure generic and Fedora packages specific tests should be supported. Package maintainers should have an easy way of providing tests for their packages. This framework is intended to obsolete AutoQA.
- A generic storage of (automated) test results. Designed to be lightweight, simple, scalable and fast. It's used by our automation frameworks (AutoQA and Taskotron).
- This database with a front-end allows us to track tasks which are scheduled, running and finished in Taskotron. It provides a simple way to navigate people (mostly admin and developer-type folks) into different corners of the Taskotron infrastructure - BuildBot job details, ResultsDB results, logs and artifacts directories. Read some design concepts.
- We use this tool (developed by our friends at SUSE, now with contributions from us too) to automate certain release test cases, especially installation with Anaconda. We develop Fedora tests for openQA, along with some helper tools.
- Beaker is an up and coming fully automated test framework that provides bare metal hardware provisioning including console and power management, and job scheduling and execution. Learn more at Beaker homepage.
- Smart Network Automated Kickstart Environment. A small tool to assist with installing and pykickstart-based library for modeling sustainable kickstarts.
Release validation testing
- python-wikitcms, relval and testdays
- A Python library and CLI based upon it for performing various release validation testing tasks in the Wikitcms 'test management system' (the set of wiki pages in which release validation test results are stored). testdays can perform a few basic operations on Test Day pages.
Test case reporting
- Test Days Frontend
- A web application for providing results from Test Days events. It uses ResultsDB (legacy) as a backend.
- Command-line interaction with Bugzilla. Supports searching, creating and modifying bugs.
Test update feedback
- Fedora Gooey Karma
- A graphical tool that makes it easy to report feedback for any updates-testing packages currently installed.
- Fedora Easy Karma
- A command line tool that makes it easy to report feedback for any updates-testing packages currently installed.
- Fedora QA scripts
- A git repository containing various small scripts.
These tools we use as our support infrastructure during QA tools development.
- Bitbucket team repository
- A list of repositories that are related to our tools and needs.
- Our main issue and code review tracker for most of our projects.
