It started off by being a great place to share qa content and let
people track progress. But over the years, and with every passing
release, its become lesser and lesser important.

As of today, qaweb.dev.centos.org is now deprecated and is being
decomissioned. The url will still respond and redirect people to a
page that explains the situation.

In the mean time, we are kicking off a stream of efforts to try and
get better test coverage, more automation, more frequent test runs and
above all - better communication to everyone on what the test results
are, while further dropping the barriers for people to come along and
write tests, help us push better code.

Two efforts currently underway are getting a status like page online,
that also shows recent history ( ref:
) and getting the Linux test project content included in the regular
test suite that we run ( ref: http://ltp.sourceforge.net/ and
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2013-March/009099.html )

How can you help ? Drop in on those conversations and talk to us, help
us put in place the best possible solution. Contribute time by helping
write more kickstart files, contribute tests and maybe even setup a
test run environment in your facility that feeds back restults to our
status tracker! Lots of opportunities for people to get involved with
the CentOS QA and Development process.

And as always, we are here to help with answers to questions or
concerns you might have. Look at the
http://wiki.centos.org/GettingHelp page for details on how you can
engage with everyone else in the CentOS Community.
