The Testing Core Team will hold an IRC meeting at 17:00 UTC, July 18 on Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network. irc://irc.freenode.net/opensuse-testing.
The agenda calls for discussion of our experiences with 12.1 MS3. As this release will likely not be available until next week, our discussion may be limited.
The main blocker bug was https://bugzilla.novell.com/705085 which will be fixed with acceptance of https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/76287 but we could already test using the Add-On-Product feature in DVD/NET installs with URL http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard/
for details on this workaround see the video for http://openqa.opensuse.org/results/openSUSE-NET-x86_64-Build0132-kerneldevel 00:21 to 00:29
Our second agenda item will concern our request to rename MS6 to Beta in hopes of increasing the number of testers in the critical late stages of testing. Our request was posted to the opensuse-project mailing list and has been discussed on opensuse-testing and opensuse-factory. Most of the comments have been favorable, and Stephan Kulow, the Release Manager, has agreed to make the name change although he doubts that it will make much difference. Coolo also asked how we will measure the effect of this change. If you have ideas on this matter, please forward them to the TCT.
we can use some crude metrics: download.opensuse.org download numbers as compared to 11.3/4 MS5/MS6/RC1 (does not include direct downloads from mirrors)
And we can look at numbers of bugreports for devel releases which is indicative of tester activity:
already shows high values for earlier MS5+ but especially 11.4-RC1
