The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 5.2. This version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora. This version has many security fixes included. As a result, the Fedora kernel and QA teams have organized a test week from Monday, Jul 22, 2019 through Monday, Jul 29, 2019. Refer to the wiki page for links to the test images you’ll need to participate. Read below for details.
How does a test week work?
A test day/week 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 do the following things:
- Download test materials, which include some large files
- Read and follow directions step by step
The wiki page for the kernel test day has a lot of good information on what and how to test. After you’ve done some testing, you can log your results in the test day web application. If you’re available on or around the day of the event, please do some testing and report your results.
Happy testing, and we hope to see you on test day.
Kernel 5.1 or 5.2?

@Maurice: Sorry for the error, it’s been fixed.
There’s a minor typo in the article, “The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 5.1.” I believe it should read 5.2.
Next time would be nice to reference the Quick Docs page about that: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/kernel/howto-kernel-testday/
