Title: Open Source QA Date: 2007-12-23 09:22 Author: eamonnfaherty Category: development Tags: QA Slug: open-source-qa
I never thought there was an onus on QA in open source projects. I was -¬†apparently¬†- wrong.
It discusses using time based releases instead of feature based releases. It has some interesting points but I would be a little dubious about implementing this for a customer based project. Time based releases could mean down time for customers without any notable¬†benefits. It also means time is spent releasing to a customer where time could be spent developing. I think it may work for projects where the customer takes all responsibility for installation but otherwise it could be a disaster.
There are other sections in the paper describing QA and quality. It is a good read! Have a read!
