What is Quality Assurance (QA)?
Quality assurance (QA) refers to the planned and systematic activities implemented in a quality system so that quality requirements for a product or service will be fulfilled.
QA doesn't require programming skills, so everyone can help us. If you are interested in doing QA, please join us.

- We coordinate our work on the QA mailing list.
Subscribe to this list if you want to follow our work.
- We also have a QA Wiki that we use for planning and documenting our process.
How to Help
We welcome QA volunteers and have several ways to get started:
- If you are familiar with both QA work and with Apache-style open source projects, then you can probably
jump right in. Join the QA mailing list and introduce yourself and we can help you get started.
- If you are familiar with Apache or similar open source projects, but new to QA, then you can look at our Orientation Modules.
You can skim over the first two levels, since much of this may be familiar. But spend more time on the
Introduction to QA module.
- If you are new to QA and to open source development, then you may also want to start with our
Orientation Modules, and give attention
to the Level 1 and Level 2 topics, as well as the Level 3 Introduction to QA.
In all cases, please join the QA mailing list and introduce yourself.
