Re: [opensuse-testing] New core testing team

Hi everyone,

I have recently been doing a lot of testing for
* radeonhd - the os-ATI driver (upstreams, solely status report for OS)
* the package management (zypper, YaST)
* interested in testing Apparmor & SELinux; own development: checkroot

Besides this I file most bug reports on diverse issues
grub, bluetooth pairing, NTP, flashplayer for OS (OpenSuSE)
- every problem that I encounter myself with Linux or that I am asked
for by friends.

Formerly I have been doing a lot of testing for KDE3; all of it
at However I have never really started to file reports for KDE4 because I thought that there would be simply too much to do and kept waiting for it to improve. As things are now there will still be a KDE3 repo for 11.2 (, but it won`t be officially supported so I guess there is little sense in filing bug reports for KDE3.

Regarding Gabriel Francos suggestion to report bugs for KDE/Gnome,
I wanna recommend posting all of them upstreams and to only open up
reports for OS if something heavily annoys or can not be done in time.
As far as I am informed Novell only has 4 full time employees on KDE
(Stephan Binner, Luboš Luňák, Dirk Mueller, Will Stephenson) -
20 testers for 4 developers will be too much!

Regarding test for wireless networking I would greatly appreciate the
support of kwlan, my favourite GUI-tool. However the last time kwlan has
worked for me was OpenSuSE 11.0 (Bug 537159) so that I am directly using
wpa_supplicant now.

Initially I have been collecting some links for our test-work at which however now has been replaced by a more
comprehensive site. Nonetheless I personally prefer having the bare
links (faster, more clear). That is why I have now put them online on my
hompage: or - njoy.

Considering images for m7 should be around now/soon I was wondering what other
members of the team thought our plan should be for this far along in the dev
And also what testing preferences each member has as well as available hardware so we can all have a rough idea of each others work flow.
I have 2 desktop machines both x86/64 as well as a macbook pro (early 2009) and a newish dell laptop, so I can do resume/suspend testing of those models. As far as preference I am really interested in the kde desktop/yast/zypper and xorg, although of course I will help with anything I can.
Also just as a heads up at work I will be posting from spf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx and at home from spencerpaulfrench@xxxxxxxxxx
