Fedora 13 Beta delay, ABRT Test Day tomorrow

QA’s contribution to this year’s outbreak of April Fool’s japery is the hilarious announcement that Fedora 13 Beta will be delayed by a week. No, wait – it’s not a joke, it’s sad, soul-crushing reality! Wasn’t that fun? Unfortunately we were behind the curve with the generation of candidate builds throughout the Beta cycle (the […]

Fedora 13 Beta testing is underway

Fedora 13 Beta is due to come out soon, with a following wind, and the QA group is already hard at work testing candidate builds. The first test compose is available, and the installation validation and desktop validation test matrices are up already; you can find information on those pages on getting the test compose […]

Printing Test Day on Thursday 2010-03-25

Just passing along this announcement from Tim Waugh, who’s done a great job organizing this event! Mandriva readers – if I still have any – in particular may want to come along to this event, as Mandriva uses system-config-printer: everything we improve through this Test Day will benefit Mandriva as well as Fedora. There will […]

FAO Googlers: Nexus One, not just Rogers

This being Google, of course none of your pages have feedback links, so I’m throwing this out here in the vague hope at least one Googler reads my blog… You have a news post trumpeting the alternate Nexus One version with different HSPA frequencies. It mentions several times that it will work with ‘Rogers Wireless’ […]

There’s always more testing to do, and this week is no exception: it’s Test Day time again! This Thursday, 2010-03-18, is storage Test Day. Fedora 13 features several improvements to disk management, and this Thursday is our time to test them out! Anyone with a computer and a hard disk can do some of the […]

Random British politics post

It’s probably another milestone for being away from the UK when British politics starts to look less like a serious topic and more like some kind of weird, Maury Povich-ish form of entertainment. I’m now wondering exactly why the Tories think there’s some kind of mileage in attacking Labour for being – shock! – connected […]

Blocker review meeting tomorrow, awesome new testing tool: fedora-easy-karma

So here’s some quick news. We have the first blocker review meeting for Fedora 13 Beta tomorrow, at 16:00 UTC – 11am EST, 8am PST. That’s in #fedora-bugzappers on Freenode IRC. As always, the more people the better, come along and share your wisdom! Especially if you have any potential blocker bugs to share. There’s […]

Webcam Test Day on Thursday 2010-03-11

It’s Test Day time again! This Thursday, 2010-03-11, is webcam Test Day. It’s really pretty simple: if you have a webcam we want you to boot up a recent Fedora and check if it works. There’s detailed instructions on the Wiki page but that’s really what it boils down to – fire up your webcam, […]

Best ‘climate sceptic’ put down ever…

Yes, it’s not big, it’s clever, but it is very funny. From the Guardian’s comment section: MikeCawood wrote: ‘”Global warming” is simply a device used by Labour as a scam to screw more taxes out of the British population. Outside of that it doesn’t exist.’ lierbag: Ignore your detractors Mike. Unlike us, they just don’t […]
