RSE 1.0 Testing round 1

Revision as of 03:03, 19 September 2006 by (Talk | contribs)

Please sign up here for testing particular features of RSE 1.0, or a particular host / target combination. It is important for all of us to coordinate our efforts

  • In order to get bugs submitted early, such that we can fix them for the release
  • In order to avoid duplication of testing work
  • In order to get a good test coverage and exposure of RSE.

The first RSE 1.0 testing phase will start with M5/RC0 on 25-Sep-2006 and last until 27-Sep-2006.
A second full test pass will start with RC1 on 8-Oct-2006 and last until 10-Oct-2006.

Detailed testing Instructions will be sent out before the official test period, so don't feel afraid of being signed up to any features you have never heard of before - this might actually help improving your test quality sinc you might tend to try things that nobody else thought about before.

Please put your name in the table below. Feel free to modify the host/target combinations, or features of RSE to test as you find yourself fit. Put an "ok" in the first column when you reviewed your assignment. You may delete assignments or limit your time commitment, but please let us know what you are planning and then stick to your commitment. The list is sorted by company name, then first name.

Signing up for a testing commitment means downloading and installing RSE, checking assigned features, and submitting bugzilla reports. A very basic sanity test should be included for each tester in addition to the specific assignment. I've started assigning 2 hours of testing for contributors / users, and 4 hours of testing for committers, which I think everybody should be able to invest. Of course, doing more testing won't hurt but please try and focus on those areas that you have signed up to.

Thanks to everybody who signs up and thus helps making RSE better!
