I wrote this Kyua Quickstart Guide:

I found that the existing Kyua documentation
is scattered across different web sites and different
conference presentations.  The documentation that I found
mixes information about how to use Kyua as well as
the theory and design of Kyua.
In addition, Google searches turn up pages that are outdated,
such as on and

For the QA people that I am working with, this is all too confusing.
It makes using Kyua a tough sell for me  This is too bad, because
despite these problems, I think that Kyua is a good framework to use
in a QA environment.

The people that I talk to need a document which is not too wordy, but in
a very short amount of time, tells them how to:
    -> install kyua
    -> write a test
    -> run the test
    -> report a result

What I wrote is not a perfect tutorial, but hopefully it is better than
and can be improved.

If people on this list want to provide feedback, that would be great.
I'm going to try to get feedback from QA people who are not BSD developers.
