Updated by szarate over 1 year ago

Potential improvement points:

* add wikipedia page describing openQA
* someone could write a recent blog article
* keep track of reference sources describing / tracking openQA, e.g. wikipedia list
* better use of the twitter account


## wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_GUI_testing_tools listed openQA but
unfortunately no separate wikipedia article for openQA which it IMHO deserves.
openQA was actually listed as "discontinued" since an anonymous edit from
2016-02 which I corrected to being active citing the page http://os-autoinst.github.io/openQA/. Maybe the broken OBS link as reported in #9436 was
making the wikipedia change author to think it is not active which would be
sad and probably something we want to avoid in the future.
I corrected this but the entry was deleted as visible in https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_GUI_testing_tools&diff=prev&oldid=709701233 as it was stated that there is no article describing openQA.

But there was a page "OpenQA" which unfortunately got deleted as well:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=delete&user=&page=OpenQA&year=&month=-1&tagfilter=&subtype=
Reasons stated are:

Does anyone know who might have created that wikipedia article and what we can do to come up with a safe version of it?

Would it help to dual-license some content, e.g. our README under CC-BY-SA or something?
