The Sakai 12 QA Hub is the home page for the Sakai 12 QA effort. Here you’ll find useful information for getting involved with testing and becoming part of the Sakai QA community.
We have four different QA testing paths from which to choose. If you are just getting started, click the EZ QA path. Once you master the EZ QA path then you should be well positioned to step up one level to what we playfully call "The QA Kid". If you are ready to be heavily involved in testing then please join our QA Maven group. We also have an EZ Maven option which is the same as QA Maven but just choosing to test some of the less complicated Sakai tools.
EZ QA and The QA Kid
EZ QA and the QA Kid are for JIRA testing. The difference is that EZ QA uses a simpler workflow, but the QA Kid will be more needed soon. This is because the QA Kid testing is for issues that are reported by Mavens, fixed by developers, and need to be tested on trunk/master before the fixes can be merged back into Sakai 12.

for QA Kid testing use this master/trunk server
QA Maven and Easy Maven are what we call Regression testing. We test Sakai tool-by-tool to see if any new bugs have been introduced. The only difference between the QA Maven and EZ QA is that EZ QA is focusing on some of the less complex tools in Sakai.

Weekly QA Planning Calls
The QA Planning Group meets every Tuesday from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, Eastern time . This group guides the overall direction of the Sakai QA effort, creates testing materials and processes, and participates in testing. Meetings agendas and notes can be found in our Sakai 11 QA Meeting Notes google doc . All are welcome! We meet in the QA Room in BigBlueButton:
Weekly Test Fests
Join our QA “Test Fests” every Thursday from 10am to 11 am, Eastern time! This is an opportunity to jump into testing Sakai 11 with the support of the QA Team and other community members. You do not need to be an functional expert to get involved! Test Fest agendas and notes can be found in our Sakai 11 QA Meeting Notes google doc . We begin our Test Fests in the QA Room in BigBlueButton (see above). Throughout the course of the Test Fest, we communicate using our new SakaiQA channel in Apereo’s Slack instance described below.

Sakai QA Slack Channel
We have a very active Sakai QA channel in Apereo’s Slack instance. We use this for communicating during Tests and Fests and asking QA questions to the group or to individuals anytime. If someone at your institution has already joined, then you can self join at:
Otherwise send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to have your institution's domain added for self signup. For a quick overview of Slack (along with some helpful tips n’ tricks), see the following video:
