Welcome to the QA list!

This mailing list is an umbrella to host people and discussions focusing 
on software quality assurance in all its aspects: exploratory testing, 
browser automation testing, unit testing, continuous integration, the 
beta cluster, bug management and community QA activities.

We hope this list becomes useful to integrate and retain people 
primarily interested in testing / QA. We are seeing many people 
interested in testing from different angles. Some people are current 
developers willing to learn and discuss more about this topic, best 
practices, etc. Some are people new to the community that see testing / 
QA as a way to contribute in technical tasks other than development.

This specialized list follows the good results offered by precedents 
like the Analytics, Design of Editor Engagement lists. wikitech-l 
subscribers will still receive the deep & wide QA related announcements. 
No teams comfortable with the status quo will be encouraged to change 
their current communication practices because of this list.

There is a bit more background at 

Now, who's next?
