The Testing team is the Quality Assurance (QA) team for Sugar. The team keeps track of current bugs in the sugar software and try to make sure that bugs are triaged correctly. Furthermore the squad does coordinate the testing efforts. You do not need any programming knowledge to be in the Bugsquad; in fact it is a great way to return something to the Sugar community if you cannot program.
The squad is modeled on the gnome bugsquad: http://developer.gnome.org/projects/bugsquad/
How bugs are tracked
- We use trac to keep track of bugs in the Sugar software. Sugar is a component of the trac instance installed at dev.laptop.org.
- Also Sugar have it's own trac instance Sugar-Trac, to non strictly XO related issues.
How to join the squad
As mentioned above, virtually anyone can be helpful. Best way to get started is by reading the TestingTeam/TriageGuide and to join us at #sugar on irc.freenode.net.
