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.

Maven Testing

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.
