I have something I need tested -- now what?
- We'd really appreciate it if you could sync up with the Web Production team; letting them know ahead of time on something you're working on helps us all get in-sync with the project, and shortens turnaround time
- Communicate with us! Send an email directly to rbillings or stephend or the mozwebqa mailing list with your ask. Our team is a lot smaller, and we're juggling a lot of balls. This means that we need you to ask us directly for what you need, and give us some head's up. Specifically we need at least a few days notice if there is something time-sensitive that needs testing.
- File a bug in Bugzilla, under the product Testing, and component "WebQA", asking us to test your site/application. assigning to "email@example.com", and I'll be sure to assign it to the right person, or make sure the team tests
- In the bug, please let us know of any pertinent schedules, deadlines, requirements, limitations, etc. Also, pointing us to design documentation or specs, such as mockups/HTML cuts/wireframes, etc. would be immensely helpful
- Please also list any third-party developers/firms we'll have to work with, to get the potential issues we might have found, addressed. (And please make sure they have a Bugzilla account, too.)
- How to get a project in automation
We welcome community members to join us and take on tasks and responsibilities; please see our quality.mozilla.org page for more information/to engage.
