How can I test updates and provide karma?

How do updates work? Are they tested before being pushed to the repositories for all users? Can I help test them?

The latest version of software for each currently supported Fedora release must go through the Fedora Quality Assurance process (QA) before it is made available to you (and all users) via the Fedora updates repositories.

Testing updates is easy! Read this page to learn how you can enable the updates-testing repository and provide karma: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Updates_Testing

For any queries, please contact the Fedora QA team: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA#Communicate
