I want to get started testing updates, but I want to be sure I
understand some things first.
Most of the updates I see that need testing are libraries. They are
either used to add functions to programming languages or provide
functions needed by the operating system and applications. Some are
identifiable by their names containing terms like Perl. I assume those
are functions for the Perl language and since I don't use Perl it seems
like it wouldn't be productive for me to try testing them. Most of the
updates I can not identify what they are used for.
With all of that I decided to check updates to see if they were
installed on the PCs here. I thought if they were I could trace them
back to see where they were used and develop some ideas of how and what
to test to see if they were good to go. After checking several updates,
though I could see the packages in dnfdragora, but they were not
installed. So the how and what to test remains a mystery.
I found some notes on EasyKarma and from what I can tell that is a tool
for registering the results of testing rather than a testing tool.
As I look at the Top Testers I see there are people testing thousands of
updates each week; so I think I am missing something, but I don't know
what. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
