The QA Team has four defined roles and work-flows to help you contribute to the many activities going on inside of Ubuntu QA. A person can hold more than one role, but it is recommended that everyone participates as a tester at some point in order to understand testing and ubuntu best.
The tester role is the backbone of the QA team, and the easiest one to get in touch with QA. Testers install and run the development releases, report and triage bugs, and provide test results.
