The Fedora project announces that this week is Graphics
Test Week. This is the highlight of the Fedora 13 Test Day cycle,
with Test Days for NVIDIA, ATI/AMD and Intel graphics all falling
this week. Tuesday April 13th is NVIDIA
Test Day, Wednesday April 14th is ATI/AMD
Test Day, and Thursday April 15th is Intel
graphics Test Day.
Although these are Fedora events, the results will ultimately
benefit almost all distributons: Fedora tends to use the latest
versions of graphics-related components and sends all its changes
upstream, so the fixes that result from these events will end up in
all major distributions.
Even if you're not a Fedora user, you can help Linux as a whole
by contributing your test results. The testing can be done using a
live image, so there's no need to install Fedora onto your system
to contribute to the testing: just download a live image, write it
to a CD or USB stick, boot it, and run through the tests.
Comprehensive test instructions are available on the Wiki pages,
and you enter your results into a table on the Wiki page; there's
no need to have a Fedora wiki account to do this. QA team members
and developers will be available on the IRC channels throughout
each event to help with testing and triage, and to work on some of
the problems immediately. The more results we get and the more bugs
we expose, the better it is for everyone, so if you have time,
please check out the Wiki pages and join the IRC channel -
#fedora-test-day on the Freenode network - to help out! You can use
if you're not a regular IRC user - just click that link and you're
in the chat.
