Special Test Day tomorrow: DeviceKit

As you may know by now, the QA group for which I shill tirelessly runs regular test days each Thursday to try and get focused testing for some area or another of the upcoming Fedora release.

This Thursday's is on Xfce, so stay tuned for info on that. However, tomorrow - Tuesday - we have a special test day (because Thursday wasn't convenient for the developers): we will be testing DeviceKit. This is a big part of Fedora 11; it's a new bit of infrastructure which takes over from HAL in some ways, in particular in terms of handling storage devices and some power management tasks.

So we need your help to make sure this works properly and doesn't cause any regressions from the HAL-based support in Fedora 10! Please drop by the Wiki page and perform the testing, and join us on #fedora-qa IRC to provide your feedback. All the testing can be done from a live CD, so you don't need a permanent Rawhide installation. If you don't know how to use IRC, see this page. Even if you can't make it to the test day, performing the tests and filling in the results table (and filing bugs if appropriate) will be a big help, so do check out the Wiki page.

Thanks very much for anyone who can help with this event!
