FAQ
Hello,






What types of tests does the CentOS Development Team do for software in its repositories?


Where does it get its test catalog from?






I want to create a testing process which is equal to if not more rigorous that the CentOS process for any third party software we use.






For example, if I install the php-mysqlnd package from the Remi repository, I want to test it just as carefully as the php-mysql package has been tested before I get it from the CentOS repository.






If somebody can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.






Thanks!


David




P.S. I've moved this question from the centos thread to the centos-devel thread as Sven suggested.

    this is something that comes up quite a bit - and it would be good to
    work on something from the project side so everyone can benefit.


    the common ground is to build up enough of a test scenario that we can
    ue that to build confidence in external repos, and something that gives
    the repo admins a target to achieve 'good practice' standards.


    Lets start with the most obvious place : what problem are you looking to
    solve ?
