This document outlines the important activities you can get involved in to help with Fedora Quality and is meant to guide you through the Quality ecosystem. It’s easy to get involved and we love to welcome people to the group! The first thing you probably want to do is get plugged in to all the right sources of information for Fedora Quality.
There are six steps you can take to get up to speed with Quality efforts (in rough order of precedence):
Whether you are looking to test a stable release, a new package from updates-testing, a Branched pre-release, or the leading edge Rawhide, QA has a way for you to contribute and get involved! We need people who like to push all the buttons, use all the command line options, verify all the documentation, review things for usability, and suggest future features - especially for anything that’s undergone major change in a recent or pending release.
Work on an upcoming stable release
Work on testing new package updates
I want to do something else!
For all of those tasks, it would be good to have some familiarity with our Bugzilla instance. A lot of contribution to Fedora Quality comes through bug reports. All you need is a Bugzilla account: create your account. Please make sure that the email addresses for your Fedora account and the Bugzilla account are the same. Our bug reporting practices provide some good background for filing bugs. If you want to discuss the bugs before reporting, QA members can be found on several channels. Experienced Quality members are more than happy to act as mentors for new members to help them get started. There is no requirement of programming knowledge. However, being familiar with Fedora and Linux in general will be extremely useful.
