[opensuse-testing] Weekly News for November 19

A Testing Core Team IRC meeting to discuss 11.4 Milestone 3 was held November
15.

We first discussed the latest developments in automated testing of installation.
If those system builds that will not install are detected early, then users will
be spared the effort wasted in downloading a product that will not run. The goal
is to minimize user frustration, and maximize user time spent in tests that
cannot be done automatically. For example, the virtual machines used in the
automatic testing have very limited hardware, thus a lot of drivers are not
tested.

Team member Bernhard Wiedemann, who developed these testing procedures, has been
granted access to a server at openSUSE for this purpose. For anyone interested
in the details of how the tests function, please see
https://lwn.net/Articles/414413/. To see the squashing of bugs over time, see
http://openqa.opensuse.org/cgi-bin/currentresults. The links in the left-hand
columns show details of the testing. To see visually what Bernhard is testing,
look at the movie.

The meeting also discussed the handling of Bugzilla reports. The plan is to
automate the scanning of the list to find those bugs that affect the pending
release so that none of bugs found in testing are allowed to persist in the
released version. Further discussion of bug handling will be reported here.
