An overview of the Firefox Quality Assurance Community based on the larger Mozilla Community.
Who Is In The Firefox QA Community
A casual contributor is someone who has volunteered small amounts of time in an activity.
- Examples: Someone who has submitted feedback for Firefox on input.mozilla.org, someone who filed a bug report or offered a solution about Firefox on SUMO, someone who has read some of our QA documentation.
- Mission impact: In aggregate, casual contributors create real value for the improvement of Firefox by spreading the word and providing decision-informing data and more.
An active contributor is someone who has volunteered substantial time performing Firefox Quality Assurance activities that involves interactions with others within the last 3 months.
- Examples: Active participation in Firefox Test Days, someone who files bugs against Desktop Firefox on Nightly builds, someone who does regular Bugzilla work in Firefox components e.g. triaging or verifying bugs in bugzilla.mozilla.org. Someone who helps with QA of Firefox features through testing or documentation.
- Mission impact: Active contributors directly support Firefox Quality Assurance through their contributions of time and skill and provide the Firefox QA Team with the ability to move forward with a wide range projects.
A core contributor is someone who has a leadership position in Firefox Quality Assurance.
- Examples: Firefox QA Feature Owner, Firefox QA Community Mentor, Firefox QA Automation Mentor
