We would like to setup a Quality Testing Team within KDE in order to 
better test our next KDE SC and make the beta process more efficient.
Attached is the first draft of the ideas I brainstormed. Source .odt of 
this document is available at

(We can make it a public Google doc if it is more convenient or an 

The document roughly describes 2 areas of action:
- reinforcement (labeled "Reinforce") of existing structures (mainly 
targeted to developers and mainly relevant before the beta stage of the 
release). This could be used as guidelines for new developers. Of course 
it won't be newbies which will develop Unit Tests or check the code 
quality. But some guidelines can be useful for libs outside Frameworks.
An area of relevant reinforcement that can be currently done is the 
Review process for new integration.
- new infra-structures: this is labeled "New" in the doc: this is what I 
would see to happen for the 4.9 release.

A new mailing list has been set up in order to discuss all this: please 
subscribe to it if you would like to be part of this
An IRC channel also was created on Freenode:

Please join the mailing list and the IRC channel so we can setup a plan 
to start putting all this in gear!

Thanks in advance,

Anne-Marie and Myriam
