  13. 13. How can the community contribute? • bugzilla / testopia – main interface and used by Novell internally as well • Novell is opensourcing test tools / infrastructure / documentation – QA code will be available in the Build Service – Build Service will be able to run tests after a build job is done – easier integration for Software maintainers • building a QA community – awards & prizes for the best QA contributors (reports, test cases, ...) • better cooperation between the community and Novell – QA community manager 13 © Novell Inc.
