Thank you for welcoming,

I think I'd like to start with updates testing. Do I need to be approved member of the quality assurance group for this?

Hello everyone,

My name is Anna.
I've been a casual linux user for the past 10 years and I think it's about time to know how it works inside.

Hope I can help with testing.

Hey Anna,
First of all welcome to Fedora QA . You can start off by testing updates in [] for Fedora 24 and Fedora 25 .  update testing is where a tester tests a package and gives out a +1 Karma for PASS and -1 Karma for FAIL. You can go to where you can sort the packages with Fedora Releases and tags viz "pending" & "testing" . You can read much about update testing here [1]. You can also, use fedora-easy-karma for giving out feedbacks.

you can start with  Release Validation testing. In Release Validation all you need to do is to check the nightly/TC/RC against certain criteria. For example, let's take the latest Rawhide (Fedora_26_Rawhide_20161210.n.0), you can run test cases which are mentioned [2] and submit your results in the test matrix.

Note that each of the test cases[3] will have "How to test" section which will have the steps (to be executed sequentially) and if the results match with the expected results you can mark it as pass by editing the wiki page {{result|PASS|<fas_username>}} . Always make sure to check for "Associated release criterion" which can be found on the top of test case page , if your test case fails you can mark it fail by editing the wiki page {{result|FAIL|<fas_username>}} and file a bug at RHBZ [4] under Fedora.

 You can always find the ‘current’ validation pages using these addresses:
