The heroes of Fedora updates testing in Q1 2013

1360095720_PrizeRecently I’ve published a list of contributors who helped to test Fedora 19 Alpha. But Quality Assurance doesn’t involve just in-development releases. We need to ensure that stable releases also work well. One of the major ways to achieve that is to make sure that broken package updates don’t enter stable updates repository. We use Bodhi system for that. I have gathered the data about Bodhi feedback contributors regardless of Fedora release involved and present it here.

Who are the heroes who watch the Fedora borders and guard us against broken software updates?

Test period: Q1 2013 (2013-01-01 – 2013-03-31)

1 If a person provides multiple comments to a single update, it is considered as a single comment. Karma value is unimportant.

As you can see, Harald Reindl (hreindl) is completely leading this effort, and no one else is even close. Thank you, Harald!

There are lots of further names from the community. T.C. Hollingsworth (patches) provided an outstanding number of comments, followed by Akshay Vyas (akshayvyas29), mooninite, Ankur Sinha (ankursinha), Rex Dieter (rdieter), Vasileios Keramidas (keramidas), bojan, nucleo, Robert C. Lightfoot (boblfoot) and many more! Thank you, and everyone else who helped with testing Fedora updates, no matter your score.

If you are interested in helping Fedora, this is a very easy way and you can start today! Just read QA:Updates_Testing and ask any questions in #fedora-qa on IRC or test list. It would be great to see more faces around.

Thanks and enjoy the day.
