In traditional companies a QA organization is formed and evolves in parallel and along side the development organization as a whole. With open source companies, internal QA is a group that typically is formed at a later stage after the development organization and the community is already established.
In its early days MySQL has based its initial quality and testing efforts in community testing. Over the years internal QA efforts have developed internally in the company and have evolved from no internal QA with complete reliance on the community, to some internal testing focused in specific areas of the product to a full fledged QA organization.
This presentation will walk through the integrating of the QA organization in MySQL and will focus on the current activities of the group. Specifically, the following will be discussed:
The presentation will include examples from the 5.0, 5.1 and 6.0 projects, will demonstrate the different levels of involvement and the challenges the QA organization had in each.
