Perhaps I did mis-phrase - ok - If you want to test CentOS 5 Beta by doing a test install (or many) then you do _not_ need to become a part of the qa team , but can do so when it is released. Joining the qa team means getting involved with the process by which the release gets from internal to public release and we expect folks to do a lot more than just test the distro ... We are looking to put together a whole suite of tests and checks that the distro will undergo before release. The CentOS-qa team will manage that process ... So - if you want to test CentOS 5 beta - please wait for the release ... If you want to be involved with developing and managing the qa process by which it gets released then you need to join the qa team. Please note that because the qa team will have access to unreleased material, membership is not automatic and members will need to be known to other members or to the CentOS core developers. If you think that you have asked to be a part of qa-team and dont want/need to be then please either email here or unsubscribe from centos-qa mailing list .
