Discussion Zone

[kglazko] baysek

  • [marcia, kthiessen] QA is going to be expected to present at the new Train the Trainers ("re-branded MozCamp") event in September. Can we get some volunteers to help document what we're looking for in volunteer QA contributors in terms of skills, attitudes, knowledge, etc? Expected commitment would be 2-4 hrs/week from now until mid-August, depending on how many people help. Wiki page is here:
  • [mschifer] Process for updating the in-testsuite and in-qa-testsuite proposal on dev-quality. Please read and comment. We will be trying this out in desktop.
    • [jsmith] Note - b2g QA ends up using a different process here (in-qa-testsuite isn't used, we file bugs in UI Tests directly for requests), so the changes won't apply to us for the in-qa-testsuite flag alone
