To be honest, I prefer the current copy of
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA to the Johannbg draft.  Splitting up
activities into "Quality Control", "Quality Assurance" and
"Development" does not seem helpful, especially since "Quality
Control" and "Quality Assurance" sound like synonyms to many people,
and the latter has no content in that draft.  And as far as I can
tell, "Development" (actually fixing bugs) is outside the scope of the
QA subproject.

And yes, I think you're right in that the difference between QC and QA
is not something people arriving at this page should be expected to be
comfortable with. I think Johann has a hold on a good principle here. I
think the principle is, the 'QA' subproject does rather a lot of
different things and we need to distinguish between them. But I think we
can find a better way of expressing that.

 From my training/experience Layman's summaries:
QA = plan (make policies & procedures) how to build the repeatably produce the product with as few (to none of the) parts as possible failing QC, and take feed back from QC to improve those plans. QC = check the produced and in production line parts for defects, and do other quality monitoring, including feed statistics back into the QA process.

So to me http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA is annoying because it is using the definition of QC and calling it QA.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quality_assurance#Quality_assurance_versus_quality_control


and if I understood "Re: QA Certification?" Date: Thu, 05 Feb 2009 14:33:41 -0500, by Adam Williamson, and Leam Hall's reply to it, then using the correct words with the correct definitions is the way you should go. Because getting the definitions reversed could cause significant question missing on an exam.
