QMO is the home of Mozilla Quality Assurance.
We sought feedback on the current state of QMO (as of June 2014) on two Mozilla mailing lists: community-building and dev-quality. The ideas presented by nearly 25 community members and QA team members are summarized below.
Summary of Feedback
Purpose of QMO
- the entrance page to QA team
- explain what the QA work is
- how QMO is structured for the different products in Mozilla
- welcoming spot for our QA community
- help the community get involved with QA activities: clear directions on how to start, depending on your skills/interests to give pointers to more advanced documentation, to promote the upcoming events.
- surface recent news (blogs, feeds) about testing needs, accomplishments and events
- a summary of how to start at QMO, for the new contributor and pinned on the home page (How I Can Help Test - should get more prominence).
- documentation should move to Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) where the rest of Mozilla's documentation resides and is well-indexed by search engines.
- Event Notification and better Event Calendar - upcoming events *first*
- easy way to adding the events to the calendar (Google, Apple, Lighting and others), rather than downloading.
- Showing the Badges for QA.
- interaction via IRC
- platform for QA education (open source testing tools, technical skills)
- listing of community members and their contributions / areas of focus
QMO Home Page
- remove the login on the top right of the home page
- create Planet QA with the blog - syndicate feeds from team members' blogs
- update the careers button to the correct link
- publicize open QA meeting on Wednesdays (see https://qa.ubuntu.com/ for inspiration)
- keep teams icons since they are adorable (kudos to Craig Cook for creating them!)
- Video section - get rid of it
- updated theme
- mobile support
- Team photo on team page
- each team member's email address for direct community interaction
- links to highlight any specific events/news/blog posts targeting their projects
- MDN / Wiki links on how to participate in their work.
- link directly to the One and Done tasks already filtered for that project
- the Desktop Firefox page should have links to Nightly/Aurora/Beta downloads
QMO is currently based on Wordpress and some plugins for additional functionality.
