It's been creeping up, and now it's time: the
world-famous Graphics Test Week begins tomorrow, with the Fedora 14
Test Day! That is 2010-09-28. As always, the event runs all day
in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC (you can connect with WebIRC).
To complete Graphics Test Week, the Radeon Test
Day takes place the following day, Wednesday 2010-09-29, and
Test Day takes place Thursday 2010-09-30.
As always, we'll be testing a range of graphics driver
functions, and we need as many people as possible to join in so we
can evaluate the widest possible range of hardware and identify as
many bugs as possible for the developers to fix. You can do all the
testing from a live image - no need for an installed copy of Fedora
14, though you can test that way too if you like - and the testing
is very easy, there are step-by-step instructions for each test and
for entering your results. And of course, there'll be many people
in IRC to help with testing and debugging.
Even if you don't use Fedora, you can take part in the Test Day
using a live image, and the results will be useful to whatever
distribution you do use: Fedora's X developers contribute all their
work upstream to the X.org and kernel projects, so all
distributions get the benefit of the testing done in Fedora Test
Days soon enough. So please, come along and help out!
If you can't make the nominated Test Day for your hardware, your
testing is still just as valuable: you can do the testing any other
day and add your results to the table on the Wiki page.
