[opensuse-testing] Weekly News for February 19
The Testing Core Team held an IRC meeting on February 14, 2011 at 18:00 UTC.

The first agenda item was our experiences with installing and running openSUSE 11.4 RC1. Each of the members present had installed the new release on several systems. No one had any significant problems. As I noted last week, my personal experiences are very good. Other than a failure for NetworkManager to start automatically, I have found no problems. I am running 11.4 on both 32- and 64-bit systems.

The second item that we discussed was the large number of open 11.4 bug reports at The major concern is that these will interfere with the resolution of important bugs with such a short time before 11.4 RC2 is released. After that only critical bugs can be addressed. Our solution is to hold an Open-Bugs-Day on Sunday, February 20 from 0:00 to 23:59 UTC. During the entire day, someone from the TCT will be available on the #opensuse-testing IRC channel on Freenode. The plan is to test which open 11.4 bugs can be closed. If anyone has further questions, there is a wiki at Please join in the efforts.

Bernhard Wiedermann then discussed the contacts he had made at FOSDEM and the extensions to openQA that will result. The first is to test Firefox by using the mozmill test scripts from Mozilla. The results are automatically fed back to Mozilla's test database. As openSUSE makes changes to the standard Firefox configuration, these tests are valuable to both sides. Bernhard also plans to start automated testing of the LibreOffice suite and will soon begin automated testing of YaST. These extra tests will be limited to Gnome, with one test per architecture per day.
