FreeIPA two factor authentication Test Day right now and tomorrow! (2013-06-06 to 2013-06-07)

Sorry for the late notice, but it seems everyone forgot to send out announcements for this event, so I’m doing it now! EDIT: npmccallum (one of the developers involved in this Test Day) is very keen to get some testing results, so he’s asked if we can extend the Test Day into tomorrow, given the […]

Virtualization Test Days this week

After we signed off on Fedora 19 Beta (coming to a mirror near you tomorrow!) there’s no rest: once again, we have two Test Days coming up this week. They are both virtualization related, too. Tomorrow, 2013-05-28, is the main Virtualization Test Day, while Thursday 2013-05-30 is Spice Test Day. We’ll be testing the ‘official’ […]

The great package format debate: why there’s no need for distributions to use the same package format

As I mentioned, I spent the weekend at LinuxFest Northwest, a great conference I’ve been to three times now. Bryan Lunduke does a recurring talk there which is called “Why Linux Sucks” or something like it. It’s a great talk, where Bryan gives his tongue-in-cheek opinion on what’s holding back desktop (and, more recently, mobile) […]

ABRT Test Day today/tomorrow – 2011-09-26!

Yet another late Test Day announcement: today/tomorrow, 2011-09-26, is ABRT Test Day, particularly focusing on ABRT’s new libreport integration. As always, you can join #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC to chat with developers and QA team members to get help with the testing and any issues you encounter, and if you’re not familiar with using IRC, […]

Test Days: GNOME last week, Preupgrade tomorrow!

Last Thursday was the second GNOME 3 Test Day, and despite a rather smaller turnout than the first event, it went off very well, with a good pile of bugs being exposed. Vitezslav Humpa, who along with Radek Lat helped to organize this event, posted a recap to the mailing list with a good overview […]

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 […]

Curious about GNOME Shell and Fedora 15? Take a sneak peek

A quick note for the terminally curious: the Rawhide nightly live build succeeded for the first time in 2011 tonight. If you grab the image from that link and throw it on a DVD or USB stick (too big for a CD at present), and you have co-operative hardware, it should boot up into a […]

Virtualization Test Day tomorrow!

Tomorrow – Thursday May 7th – will be a Test Day for virtualization for Fedora 11. As always, it’ll be held in #fedora-qa on Freenode IRC. We’d really like to get as many people as possible out to help test. What’s up for testing are the virtualization technologies Fedora has done a lot of work […]

Radeon test day follow-up, Power management test day tomorrow

So the Radeon test day is happening now and has been a great success – many testers present and useful bugs filed. Dave Airlie was online earlier and should be online again in a couple of hours, so we’re still rocking, but thanks to everyone who’s come out so far! Also a big thanks to […]

Testing the Fedora 11 Installation Guide

Every release, the dedicated volunteers in the Documentation team produce the Fedora Installation Guide, an exhaustive and detailed guide to installing Fedora. For Fedora 11, they have asked us in the QA team to co-ordinate ‘testing’ of the Installation Guide. By doing installations following the instructions in the Installation Guide, we can find issues in […]
