GNOME 3 Test Day #1 recap

The first GNOME 3 Test Day took place on 2011-02-03 and went very well, thanks a lot to everyone who took the time to help out with testing!

Just preparing images for the test day exposed some important bugs to be fixed, and the event itself exposed many more. We had 56 tests run by slightly fewer testers (many thanks to those who tested multiple machines!) and the list of reported bugs looks like this (the hyperlinks take you to a list of the bugs within each Bugzilla):

For now, thanks again to everyone who came to test, and to the desktop team for all their hard work helping prepare the stack for testing and helping out on the Test Day.
