[TEST] Team testers? (part 2)


 Share

Recommended Posts

some simple thoughts to help (assuming limited time consumption)

 

- adding a  short "Roadmap" (main & side quests) section (in docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/ ?)

 

displaying "main" goals for current & possible next iterations because currently the single tasks is the forum are useful but not "readable"

 

- a (google group?) mailing list (read only) for contributors (to push roadmap changes & call for tasks)

 

- a separate mailing list (read only) to call testers when needed

 

- a page to report testing per board (wiki? google web document?)

Check forum guidelines to use maximum potential!

Anything but not yet another technology. We got a forum and sending a PM to more than one users will & must do. It's an rear event and we don't have 100+ people which need to be notified.

 

When tester found a problem it simply files an GitHub issue and since it is an issue, report & discussion goes here and when done its closed. GitHub has all abilities to assign and track if we need that.

 

There will be mistakes, doubling, wrong GitHub issue ID link to forum, etc. and people need guidance to comply with those simple rules. That is the job description  :P

 

Out off all ideas how to do things better and to find more bugs :D we need more raw bug fixing / issue closing power since now there are only few people working on it and we already have troubles keeping up.

I think introducing new tools for this job is not a good idea regardless of resources. We already have them, we just don't use them this way. Resources are always tiny and something not to waste.

 

It might sound a bit "new age" but using simple tools leads to creativity and innovation, while using complex tools leads to procrastination. In first case you deal with the problem in second you usually don't get anywhere. You have tools to play with. That was my point, nothing personal.
