While we support many Mozilla projects on the Web QA team, I'd like to highlight one that I've been working on for the last couple releases now: Mozilla Reps.

We'll do a testday on it soon, I just wanted to encourage anyone interested to start looking at it now :-)

How can you help? Like all Mozilla projects, there's always a list of fixed bugs/features to verify, as well as a good amount of exploratory testing. For examples of the kinds of things we'd test for, check out a couple blog posts by yours truly: part 1, part 2.

What makes testing this particular site a bit unique is that Mozilla Reps is made up by a community committee, so most of the functionality depends on being a bonafide member; for testing purposes, we can bypass the usual application form, by making you a "vetted 'Reps' member" (though, of course, we encourage you to apply for real!)

Your best steps to begin, are to visit the team in #remo-dev on, and letting anyone in the channel know that you're interested in helping test!

Here are some more general resources to help get you familiar:

* Mozilla Reps wiki page, for general information/an overview
* Mozilla Reps "Website" page, for specific website-release information
* a list of open bugs, so you don't file duplicates
* all Resolved FIXED bugs needing verification

Eventually--I'm told--the plan is to incorporate elements (or the site wholesale) into Mozillians (, so look for that in the coming future!

And, lastly, a link back to the Web QA homepage, in case you have any further questions, about this or any web-testing project(s) @ Mozilla!

(Title get your attention? Good! Keep reading...)

My awesome coworker Matt Brandt has highlighted the awesome work and contributions that Rajeev Bharshetty is doing for and with, Mozilla WebQA.

I'd like to take this opportunity to call out another great contributor to (and with) WebQA: Sergey Tupchiy, who we nominated for Friend of the Tree (along with Rajeev) in this past Monday's meeting.


Sergey has been instrumental: he helped us turn around a Q4 goal of having test templates custom-tailored for brand-new Engagement/Marketing websites (and which, quite frankly, has application and implications for our standard test templates, going forward.

His flurry of awesome GitHub activity should be self-evident :-)

In 2012, and kicking it off this quarter, Mozilla WebQA (and the rest of Mozilla QA) will be taking a hard look at, and hopefully making many inroads into, a better community on-boarding story; we're blessed to have the great contributors we already do, but need to grow and scale to meet Mozilla's ever-increasing challenges.

We're looking for contributors of all expertise areas, skill levels, and project interest; if interested, or just want to find out more information, please contact us via whichever below method best works for you, and we'll happily help you get started!

(And a huge thanks, again, to Sergey, and other awesome contributors like Rajeev!)

I won't embed it here, but here's the Mozilla Memory interview on how I became involved with Mozilla: I'm glad I was forced to write it all down -- memories I wouldn't want to forget :-)

A huge thanks to Ken Albers for capturing it so accurately!
