PSA: Don’t fedup to Fedora 21 right now (EDIT: you can now!)

EDIT 2014-11-05: It’s fine to fedup to F21 now – at least so far as I know, and so far as the bug described in this post is concerned. We’ve made sure several different ways that you should not possibly be able to hit the 15 minute timeout bug. It’s probably not a good idea […]

ownCloud updates for Fedora 19 and EPEL 6

Hi, folks. Instead of relval (for a change) I spent some of my non-work time today working on ownCloud packaging (I’m the owner/’primary contact’/whatever for the ownCloud package, these days). I’ve been in touch with ownCloud’s awesome security folk, Lukas Reschke, recently, and he confirmed that the ownCloud version currently in Fedora 19 and EPEL […]

Being a Sporadic Overview Of Linux Distribution Release Validation Processes

Yup, that’s what this is. It’s kind of in-progress, I’ll probably add to it later, haven’t looked into what Arch or Debian or a few other likely suspects do. Fedora Manual testing Our glorious Fedora uses Mediawiki to manage both test cases and test results for manual release validation. This is clearly ludicrous, but works […]

I wrote a thing: relval / wikitcms 1.1, Fedora QA wiki test management tool

I think I might finally have to hand in my ‘I don’t code’ card. As I buried in another post last week, I wrote a thing – Relval (and wikitcms). relval is a tool for interacting with the Fedora wiki, as it is used by the Fedora QA team for managing test results. It’s an […]

Fedlet 2014-09-29 released

Hi, folks – announcing a new Fedlet image. sha256sum is aa2f1150e40965471fc2888db6aad7da52d98f36ce1224b630ba5ed99b28fd5e . This has been rigorously tested by me booting it and pressing a few buttons. It’s built on a 3.17 rc6 kernel and Fedora 21 userland. A couple of patches from Jan-Michael Brummer: one to make the ‘Home’ button on the Venue 8 Pro […]

Fedora 21 Alpha release, common bugs, relval, and wiki work

I’ve had quite the packed week, somehow. I started off on Monday with the regular QA meeting, then wrote up the initial Common Bugs page for Fedora 21 – many thanks to bitlord for adding a note on the ARM issue I didn’t really understand! As part of that, I did the usual thing where […]

Virtualization Test Day today!

Oh hi! Come in. I didn’t see you there. Don’t mind me, I’m just rewriting the entire damn wiki while pretending I know how to code stuff and doing stupid tricks with Wiki templates. I’ll try and get to a summary of my interesting week tomorrow. In the mean time! Today is Virtualization Test Day! […]

This week in Fedora QA: Fedora 21 Alpha validation, Cockpit and ARM Test Days

Hi folks! Well, your humble monkey has been spending more time than he strictly ought to pretending he’s a web developer this week, but Fedora 21 QA rolls on regardless. We have had some major headaches with getting Fedora 21 Alpha built, but as of this morning we finally have a release candidate. Network installs […]
