Dear openSUSE GNOME interested users / contributors.

We had some very valuable bug reports coming in, but on those I'm afraid a
big bunch started only coming in during RC phase, which was very difficult
for to get all of them addressed in time.


I thought the quality of the first few Milestones were really poor (see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=581636#c36 ). I for one
could only get a decent workable system from MS4, if I remember
correctly, and the only bug prior to that was the system not working (I
guess due to the KMS stuff going on, I was left staring at a black
screen, and nothing to do). Testers need to have systems that work to
the point where they can carry out their testing on the desktop, various
apps, etc. For this release cycle (it is not the GNOME team's doing I
know), that point was reached at around MS4 I think.

A general comment here: if you're a really active tester (in this case,
Atri is), it's probably worth making much more noise about bugs that
really block you from testing anything. Either ping other developers, or
make sure it's mentioned on the list of annoying bugs, or mail
opensuse-factory, or... And explicitly mention it makes it impossible to
test the releases.

We might want to give the testing team some bigger sticks to avoid this
in the future. Btw, Atri, are you part of the testing team?

Cheers,

Vincent
