Fedora test days are events where anyone can help make sure changes in Fedora work well in an upcoming release. Fedora community members often participate, and the public is welcome at these events. If you’ve never contributed to Fedora before, this is a perfect way to get started.
There are two upcoming test days this week. The first, on Tuesday April 10, is to test the Add-On Modularity. Wednesday April 11, the test day is focusing on Fedora Atomic Host, Fedora Atomic Workstation and Fedora Cloud Base content. On Friday April 13, the test day is focusing on the Kernel in Fedora. Come and test with us to make the upcoming Fedora 28 even better.
Modularity test day
Add-On Modularity is a new feature coming to the Fedora 28 Server Edition bringing multiple versions of software to Fedora by introducing a new concept called modules. From the user perspective, modules are like release-independent package groups on independent lifecycles, available in multiple streams.
To test the new feature, Fedora Modularity and QA teams have organized a test day for Tuesday, April 10. Need some help on what to test and how to test? Check out the wiki page which provides detailed information about the Atomic/Cloud test day. If you’re available on or around the day of the event, please do some testing .
Atomic / Cloud test day
In this Test Day, you can test Fedora Atomic Host, Fedora Atomic Workstation and Fedora Cloud Base content. See the Fedora Atomic Host Pre-Release Page for links to the artifacts for Fedora Atomic Host. You can also refer here for a link to the Atomic Workstation ISO. Refer to the Alternative Downloads Beta Page for links to Cloud Base Beta images. There are qcow, AMI and ISO images ready for testing. Additionally, Vagrant Boxes will be available for testing as well.
Kernel test day
The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 4.16. This
version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora.
This version will also be the shipping kernel for Fedora 28. As a
result, the Fedora kernel and QA teams have organized a test day for
Friday, April 13. Refer to the wiki page for links to the test images you’ll need to participate.
How do test days work?
A test day is an event where anyone can help make sure changes in Fedora work well in an upcoming release. Fedora community members often participate, and the public is welcome at these events. If you’ve never contributed before, this is a perfect way to get started.
To contribute, you only need to be able to download test materials (which include some large files) then read and follow directions step by step.
Detailed information about both test days are on the wiki pages above. If you’re available on or around the days of the events, please do some testing and report your results.
