Test Days

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

I’m on a train and I haven’t been blogging enough lately, so I figured I’d write something up! We’ve had a couple of great Test Days in the last couple of weeks: i18n Test Day and Live Media Writer Test Day. Thanks a lot to everyone who came out and tested – the attendance was […]

Fedora Media Writer Test Day tomorrow! (2016-04-19)

Hi folks! Just another Test Day notice: tomorrow (Tuesday 2016-04-19) will be Fedora Media Writer Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 24, the Fedora graphical USB writing tool – formerly called “Live USB Creator”, and still technically called that in terms of source repos and filenames, but in the process of […]

Fedora 24 Internationalization Test Day on 2016-04-12!

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 […]

Translation Test Day tomorrow, Tuesday 2016-03-29!

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. Fedora’s dedicated g11n (globalization) team is working hard as always to get translation and internationalization in shape for the Fedora 24 release, so please do […]

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 […]

Cinnamon Test Day tomorrow (2015-10-08)

It’s time for the final Test Day of the Fedora 23 cycle: tomorrow, Thursday 2015-10-08, is Cinnamon Test Day. A nice simple one: we’ll be testing out the Cinnamon desktop on Fedora 23, particularly the new live spin, and making sure everything works well and looks right. If you’re a Cinnamon fan, interested in it, […]

Cloud Atomic Test Day on Tuesday (2015-09-22)

Hi folks! Just to let everyone know, we have another Test Day coming up on Tuesday 2015-09-22, Cloud Atomic Test Day. The wiki page isn’t up yet but should be soon. This will be a combined event with the fine folks over at CentOS, and the idea is to test both Fedora’s and CentOS’ Atomic […]

i18n Test Day coming up tomorrow (2015-09-01)

It’s time for another Test Day tomorrow (2015-09-01)! Continuing the “all those places in the world that aren’t America” theme with i18n, it’s the i18n Test Day! Here we’ll be testing things like complex language input, rendering of non-Latin text, and DNF langpack installation. If you have some time to stop by and help out, […]

Programming note: no Cloud Test Day tomorrow

Hi folks! Eager Test Day-ers may have seen the trac ticket and/or Test Day calendar entry for a Cloud Test Day tomorrow (2015-08-27), but please know that it’s no longer going to happen as all the bits are not yet in place. It will be run some time in September instead. The Cloud team will […]

Fedora 23 l10n Test Day: 2015-08-18 and NetworkManager Test Day: 2015-08-20

Hi folks! So the Fedora 23 Test Day schedule is swinging into gear next week, with the l10n Test Day. l10n is localization: for the test day, the goal is to check the ‘availability and accuracy’ of translations for several of Fedora’s major desktop applications. If you’re proficient in any language besides English, it would […]
