This Thursday, 2011-03-10, will be the second of three GNOME 3 Test Days. These events help both Fedora and GNOME ensure that GNOME 3 will be reliable and fully functional for its impending 3.0 release and for Fedora 15.
The first event was a great success in terms of turnout and bugs identified, so thanks to everyone who joined in, and we hope you will come out again for the second event. We will be re-running the tests from the first event to try and identify where issues have been fixed (or where regressions have occurred) and also running some new tests.
As with the first event, the testing will be easy and can be done entirely from a live image, there's no need to install an unstable Fedora release on your system. Even if you're not a Fedora user, you can join in with testing, and it will benefit all distributions, as any fixes will happen in upstream GNOME. The testing is split up into small chunks and you can help out in as little as ten minutes (plus the time it takes to download the live image). There are full testing instructions on the Wiki page, and Fedora QA and desktop team members will be in the IRC channel #fedora-test-day on Freenode all day long to help out with testing and with any questions you might have. If you don't know how to use IRC, you can use WebIRC - just click the link to open the chat channel in your browser.
This is a great opportunity to see the latest developments in GNOME 3 and help out the GNOME and Fedora projects at the same time, so please come along if you have time!
