This is a reminder that the Testing Core Team will be holding our 3rd Open Bugs Day on Sunday 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.
To ensure that all the testers are using the same code base, we are making Virtual Machines available on our server. For those people that wish to test on their own hardware, there will be KDE and Gnome virtual images available at http://www5.zq1.de/img/, and distribution snapshots available at http://mirror.zq1.de/opensuse/factory/iso/. The virtual images have been prepared with KVM and tested with VirtualBox, and are compressed to a little over 900 MB. Instructions for using them in a VirtualBox VM are posted at http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Open-Bugs-Day.
The purpose of this OBD is to test the open bugs reported for oS 11.4 to see which of them are still affecting 12.1. As there are over 1300 open bugs for 11.4, we have a major job to do. If you have any time available on August 21, please join us. Use Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network. irc://irc.freenode.net/opensuse-testing to get started. We hope you will join the effort to help eradicate bugs and make 12.1 be the best release ever.
Our next IRC meeting will be at 17:00 UTC, September 12 on Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network. irc://irc.freenode.net/opensuse-testing. We will discuss our experiences with MS5.
