I have something I need tested -- now what?

  1. 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
  2. Please take a look through our Support Levels document, and let's begin the discussion of what support your project needs, by when, and how we can help work towards making that a reality
  3. File a bug in Bugzilla, under the product Testing, and component "WebQA", asking us to test your site/application.  assigning to "", and I'll be sure to assign it to the right person, or make sure the team tests
  4. 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
  5. 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.)
