The heroes of Fedora updates testing in Q2 2013
Another quarter is gone, let’s see how much testing of proposed updates in Fedora we have done. The purpose of this testing is to make sure that broken updates don’t enter our stable (or soon-to-be-stable) Fedora releases. The test feedback is managed inside Bodhi application and here are the statistics for the recent quarter:
Test period: Q2 2013 (2013-04-01 – 2013-06-30)
1 If a person provides multiple comments to a single update, it is considered as a single comment. Karma value is not taken into account.
When compared to Q1 2013, the number of reporters remained steady, but the number of reports increased almost twofold. That is amazing, I suspect it’s directly related to the Fedora 19 stabilization cycle and release.
The top-performers have almost an even score, which is great to see. They are Adam Williamson (adamwill), Reindl Harald (hreindl) and Igor Gnatenko (ignatenkobrain). Thank you guys for your outstanding and steadfast performance!
It’s also interesting to see that in the top 15 list there are only 4 Red Hatters (Adam, Kevin, Alexander and me), all the rest are community participants. I love that fact very much. Testing might not always be fully engaging, but still, paid employees are the minority here. What a strong community.
If you see yourself in the table, or if you are somewhere below the threshold, thank you. Your effort makes Fedora stable and reliable.
If you haven’t participated yet, maybe it’s time to give it a try? You can start today! Just read QA:Updates_Testing and ask any questions in #fedora-qa on IRC or test list. We would love to see even more people involved.
When reading the statistics, please take it with a grain of salt. Not all numbers are directly comparable. This is not meant to be a comparison chart, but a well-meant “thank you” letter.
The statistics were generated by these scripts.
