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. 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.
  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.)
