Hi Caio, all,

yeah, I think you nicely sum it up - so the tools mentioned are no
silver bullets, they don't per se give you a quality release. That's
why I asked what we'd _really_ need - it means striking a balance
between effort to set things up, or even recode them, providing QA
volunteers coming from OOo an effective work environment (there's a
certain amount of "but we're used to that tool!" mentality to cater
for) - and, I think that's the great opportunity - the chance to
honestly look at the process, make it lean, effective - and fun to
work with.

One volunteer with a nice computer and lots of VMs would be able to
run at least the most important tests for each language and the
complete set for english builds.
That said, we don't have one.
Also, I don't know if there is someone here that knows how to write
the testtool scripts here contributing with this project.

Integrating without testing could be dangerous and for a few people
testing every branch (CWS) it would be boring. We can leave this
discussion for latter, but for now testtool is not one of the most
important things on QA, since we can test everything manually.

We can use the wiki and mailing lists instead of TCM, as already
suggested, but that can become a major headache in a near future,
since would be exponentially harder to manage more languages and more

As far as I know, setting up QATrack for us is easy and Per said he
only needs a server. That's useful and easy to set up and use, so
it's a must.

Cool - so I had folks from France and Brazil offering hardware, let
me see if we can connect you.

Per Eriksson, what do you need on the server to run QATrack?
