QA is an official OpenStack project team.

Project Team Definition

Official Title: OpenStack Quality Assurance

PTL: Ghanshyam Mann (gmann)

Mission Statement:
Develop, maintain, and initiate tools and plans to ensure the upstream stability and quality of OpenStack, and its release readiness at any point during the release cycle.


The OpenStack QA project team is made of multiple projects which each run independently towards the goals of the project team. Each project maintains a separate core team based on who provides reviews in those projects.

For the purposes of voting on QA Project Team activities, anyone that's core on any of the projects gets a vote.

Project liaisons

To make cross project communication easier and fill gaps in domain expertise between projects and QA (bidirectionally) each project designates a liaison for handling integration issues. See QAProjectLiaisons.

Feature proposals

To propose a feature to any of the QA projects you first need to file a spec in qa-specs. The entire process is outlined here: qa-specs-process

Pushing Releases

The process for pushing project releases is documented here: QA/releases
