QA Meeting Agenda
Please place the things you wish to discuss at the QA meeting on IRC below.
In the next meeting...
- I want to discuss how to integrate Fennec as 3rd party app into bugs.maemo.org
- Do we need ttis integration? Why bugzilla.mozilla.org is not enough?
- What are alternatives?
- There is already an open bug for this issue. Feel free to add your thoughts!
- How to build a bridge between bugs.maemo.org and the package voting system
- As somebody fills bug reports normaly only if I found a bug during normal daily use it would be nice to have a link to the application packge to vote for.

 Meeting details
- IRC: irc.freenode.org
- Channel: #maemo-meeting
- Time: Tuesday, November 10th, 14:30 UTC
- QA is good.
- The criteria are a good start, but need tweaks
- The packages UI needs some streamlining for testers.
- As a tester, a better reminder of the checklist when checking would be good. I also like the ease with which I can give feedback.
- As a developer, I don't *think* I want to be constrained with "release early, release often" when fixing bugs or introducing new small features.
- We need a mechanism to preserve karma or reset it to zero.
- Discuss the possibility of PPAs or personal repositories.
- specific bug report should always be required to block a package from entering Extras.
- Developer's karma and tester's karma should be incorporated so that a "developer with high karma would be able to push packages through the process faster, and a high rolling tester would be able keep bugs open and classified as critical in case of disagreement."
- Bugtracker field should be a blocker ? what about background packages ?
- What to do with CLI apps ?
- Allow people to vote multiple time.
- We recommend lowering acceptable karma from 10 to 5.
- Thumbs down requires a comment as well.
- Testers should follow the checklist closely so it is clear what the testing criteria are.
- Positive package karma gets preserved for bug fixes, cosmetic changes.
- Allow people to cast more than one vote for a package.
- App authors should be *prevented* from thumbing up own app and that a maintainer thumbing it down removes it from the QA list
- PPAs are bad.
- Without an application, libraries do not go through the QA process. tester logs in, reviews app metadata on web, installs via .install, tests and then votes ;-)
- Approval interface available in Application Manager.
- User clicks a series of checkboxes, the app gets promoted automatically.
