Update QA/testing documentation
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Since more and more people that are completely new to testing and/or mediawiki are joining us, I would like to make sure our documentation is as good as possible.

The first step was to find the documentation that we already have.

I have found Category:QA[1] (55 pages) and Category:Testing[2] (37 pages).

Should we move information from mediawiki-selenium readme file[1] somewhere to mediawiki.org?

I'm declaring victory on this. The pages are all under https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Quality_Assurance , you get a reasonable set of pages searching for "New contributors" and "QA". Open specific bugs for further issues.

There's still an uneasy split and duplication between information in READMEs in git and the collection of wiki pages. We have to solve this in general. You could manually publish a README.wiki file to a page on mw.org, or add a soft redirect on a wiki page from mw.org to the README in github.
