How to use QA testtool

by NAKATA, Maho (


To mark as `released', release candidate packages must be QA'ed. How candidates are QA'ed are up-to the responsibilities of QA lead of each native language project. A possible release test can be done by using QAtesttool, and it is widely accepted.

VMplayer or not?

For Pentium/Opteron machines, we used VMware player which is freely available and in this document, we used intensively used VMware player (or vmware server)

* We can isolate environment and do not break ones setting for tests
* We can perform two tests at the same time.
* You can VMware server, too but this is a persona pereference; but VMware player is bit faster.

How long does one QAtest take?

Release sanity test usually takes about 15hours regardless of the platform, e.g., CPU etc.
