Thank you for the welcome, Matthew Miller!
Any chance I can get your advice on getting started? I’m not experienced with QA (yet),
but I’m a diligent problem solver and learner, however, there appears to be a lot to learn
for a newbie and a lot of directions to go at once. So far I have:
• Signed up for the mailing lists
• Introduced myself on the mailing list
• Created a FAS account
• Watched Sumantro Mukherjee’s Fedora QA Global Onboarding Call
• Started following items on Bodhi
Next, I plan to:
• Setup a virtual machine setup
• Install relval and easy karma
• Try to test updates on bodhi
• Visit openQA and fedore-qa on Pagure
Is there anything I am leaving out?
I have 1 question about editing the wiki to update test results - I can’t login to wiki
because it says “You need to have at least CLA+1 (group)” to login. How can I get this
fixed or does relval/easy karma take care of this for me?
Thanks (in advance) for any advice or info!
Ps. I crossposted to https://ask.fedoraproject.org/t/getting-started-with-qa-testing/2736
and will update there with any useful info for future newbies’ reference.

QA is also an area that always fascinated me because I love to push all
the buttons and try all the switches. And I believe I’m pretty good at
describing what I’m seeing and what is going right (or wrong). I’m looking
to learn more about the QA process and how it works in an open source
project and am hoping I can make a contribution in time and effort. Thanks
for the opportunity and I I look forward to speaking/writing and learning
from you all.
Hi Danny Lee, and welcome! Since Silverblue is a new thing, we definitely
need an influx of new testers, so your involvement is very welcome!
