With Fedora 21 out the door and into the wild, I’ve finally had time to gather stats on who contributed to the Fedora QA efforts. With each milestone release (and usually each quarter), QA likes to give a big shout out to those who made things possible. Fedora 21 was a departure from past releases and gave the whole of the Fedora community a lot of new processes to create and improve. Instead of one single release product, we tested and released 3 products – Workstation, Server and Cloud. Each of these required some additional testing which QA hadn’t had to do for previous releases.

The stats here were gathered from Bodhi, Bugzilla and the Fedora Wiki using the “fedora-qa” stats scripts as well as relval. Our current tooling doesn’t allow me to easily break these stats down by individual product, so these numbers are cumulative across all three. I have statistics for the entire Fedora 21 lifecycle, so I’ll be breaking this post into 3 parts. This first installment will be stats from the Release Validation efforts – which is entering test results into the Fedora Wiki. But before we get to that – here are some highlights!

Highlights

  • Throughout the Fedora 21 cycle, 2,524 testcases were run by roughly 30 testers
  • We had 5,143 total Bodhi comments from over 175 testers
  • 3,470 new bug reports from over 500 people for F21

Those are some pretty impressive numbers – great work and thanks to all who were involved!

Wiki Stats

This is a slightly trimmed list of people who submitted release validation testing results. There are several different matrices of test cases which get tested and they get run for every Milestone release (Alpha, Beta and Final). Testing at each release helps to show how thoroughly tested each of area is.

Alpha

Testers: 23

Over 450 results were submitted for Alpha, which is great. Keep in mind, this doesn’t include all the rawhide validation testing we’d been doing until Alpha was branched. Pwhalen, Satellit and Michalv tore the matrix up with over 250 combined results submitted! Now let’s move on to Beta (keep an eye out for a trend here).

Beta

Testers: 30
Reports: 889

Again, you can see Pwhalen doing some mad work throughout. Satellit comes in third after being edged out by Adamw by a mere 21 results. Between Alpha and Beta several new testers joined the cause and the reported results exploded from 463 to 889! Thanks to everyone for great testing during Beta!

Final

Again total reports shot up between Beta and Final. While the number of testers remained about the same, the amount of testing steadily increased as we got closer and closer to release. Very similar to how things went with F20. Did you spot the trend in those three tables? Pwhalen and Satellit dominated for an entire release. Pwhalen submitted 482 test results and Satellit submitted 335 results – about 30% of all testcases reported.

Awesome work! Looking forward to what kinds of numbers you post for F22 :p The next installment will be on updates testing through Bodhi.
