Test Days

Oooh, look! A shiny thing!

Hmm. Today I was supposed to be finalizing the test cases for Thursday’s switchable graphics Test Day. Instead, thanks to this: (jeff) adamw: Hey, I’ve been approached by 2 different people telling me dnf system-upgrade was failing. In both cases they had to import the F24 key manually. And in both cases they were going […]

Fedora 25 switchable graphics Test Day this Thursday, 2016-11-03

Yep, it’s Test Day time again – most likely the final Test Day of the Fedora 25 cycle. This Thursday, 2016-11-03, will be switchable graphics Test Day! ‘Switchable graphics’ refers to the fairly common current practice of laptops having two graphics adapters, one low-power one for general purpose use, one more powerful one for use […]

Fedora Workstation Wayland Test Day: 2016-10-13!

Hi folks! Time to announce another Fedora 25 Test Day: Wayland Test Day! Note, the wiki page doesn’t exist yet, as the wiki is having issues right now, but I wanted to make the announcement early enough to give people time to prepare. You may have read that we plan to make Fedora 25 Workstation […]

Hi folks! It’s Fedora Test Day time once again! Tomorrow, 2016-09-28, will be the Fedora 25 i18n Test Day. i18n is internationalization; i18n and its buddy localization (l10n) (together known as ‘g11n’, for ‘globalization’) cover all the work needed to make Fedora usable in languages other than U.S. English and countries other than the U.S. […]

Fedora QA goings-on: Test Days, Fedora 24 Beta testing, LinuxFest NorthWest and more!

Hi folks! Yep, it’s that time again: Test Day time! Next Tuesday (hey yeah, I’m posting the note in good time for a change) will be Fedora 24 Internationalization Test Day. What’s ‘internationalization’? Well, it’s stuff like input methods and locale-specific packaging, so one big topic this time will be the changes to glibc locale […]

Hey folks! Sorry for the short notice, but once again it’s time for a Fedora Test Day! Tomorrow, 2016-03-29, will be Translation Test Day over in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.

QA happenings, post-F23

Hi folks! I haven’t blogged for a while, so I thought I’d write up a few notes on what’s going on in QA now Fedora 23 has been released. We’ve been working for the last few years to improve ongoing validation testing outside of the Alpha/Beta/Final TC/RC system, so of course, we’re testing Fedora 24 […]
