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 […]

The true story of what was

I was poking a longstanding minor niggle in anaconda today, and it made me think about one of the principles I’ve come up with over the years I’ve worked on bugs, in various capacities. To put it simply: it’s often important to know the story of why something came to be the way it is. […]

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’ […]

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 […]

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 […]
