Thanks for visiting my page! I am a Fedora Quality Assurance Engineer and now I am working on the project Fedora installation test automation.
I start to use Fedora when I was a student and developed the molecular simulation project on Linux platform.

Auto Test

    • ...

It seems huge, if we wanna cover all!

  1. Platform
    1. virt-manager/lib-virt+KVM
  2. Development
    1. trigger Testing, refer the current test events being monitored:;a=tree;f=hooks
    2. Check installation media, refer QA:Installer image presence test case
    3. detect the prerequirements (arch etc) of the Fedora installation and create the suitable KVM machines.
    4. start to install fedora (which installation mode to choose)
    5. log the test result. (cases: installation successes, exception occurs but not block the installation, exception occurs and blocks the installation).
  3. Works need to do
    1. explore trigger (AutoQA current monitored events)
    2. check installation media (This has been done in AutoQA, still need to explore how to call it.)
    3. access the AutoTest Server from AutoQA client and explore the Python libraries of AutoQA, such as util etc, but it seems there is no documentation.
    4. explore the files of Fedora, such as .treeinfo, initrd etc. which I need to deal during development.
  4. Questions
    1. where to find the AutoQA arguments?
