This is a reminder that the Testing Core Team will be holding our 3rd Open Bugs Day on August 21, 2011 from 0:00 to 23:59 UTC, The web page describing the event is http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Open-Bugs-Day. The emphasis will be on finding what open bugs found in 11.4 are still present in 12.1 MS4.
Although there are no Media that indicate they are MS4, it is possible to upgrade an MS3 installation to what is the equivalent of MS4. The procedure is to delete all existing repos and select the repos at
http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/oss http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/non-oss http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/debug
The last one is optional. Once these repos are selected (and enabled), then do 'sudo zypper dup'. Although the result announces itself as MS3, it really is MS4.
Our next IRC meeting will be at 17:00 UTC, August 15 on Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network. irc://irc.freenode.net/opensuse-testing. We will discuss our experiences with MS4 and finish the planning for Open Bugs Day.
