Fedora QA Dashboard

Description

Fedora QA dashboard is an idea of a web application that would be the landing page for QA related activities. The current state, as we see it, is that we have tons of helpful documents, tools, and processes, but these are scattered, or sometimes hard to reach/understand without some preliminary knowledge. We identified this as the major obstacle in bootstrapping new members of the community. Goal for this project is making the learning curve less steep. We have basic PoC, that could serve as a base to build from, or an inspiration for a rework.

Deliverables

As a GSoC intern, you will be responsible for the following :

  • Code of single-page application in javascript

  • Buildable dockerfile, so the app can be deployed in our openshift cluster

  • Share monthly reports to the community blog and QA meetings


KiwiTCMS integration with Fedora QA workflow

  • Difficulty : Intermediate

  • Technology : Python, Container basics, JSON-RPC API

  • Mentor : Alex Todorov (Kiwi TCMS project lead),Sumantro Mukherjee (QA team)

  • Email : atodorov@otb.bg, sumukher@redhat.com

Description

Kiwi TCMS has been in talks for Fedora QA since sometime. Last year, Fedora team members made a POC run to a KiwiTCMS instance for sometime. However, the whole idea was to run it and test the viability of Kiwi TCMS becoming a default TCMS for Fedora. As a initial part of the POC efforts, QA identified a few missing pieces which become obstruction to having Kiwi TCMS as our go to TCMS.

  • Develop and integrate plugin for FAS/AAA AKA noggin for Authentication

  • Integrate bugzilla with the workflow

  • Add functionality for submission of anonymous result submission

Deliverables

As a GSoC intern, you will be responsible for the following :

  • Finishing the Authentication plugin

  • Build, test and deploy the TCMS and update as community reviews

  • Share monthly reports to the community blog and QA meetings
