[opensuse-testing] Weekly News for June 11
The Testing Core Team held an IRC meeting at 17:00 UTC, June 6 on our usual
channel.

We first discussed our experiences with 12.1-MS1. The KDE Live CD has the login problem (Bug #687781) and is nearly unusable. The bug report lists some workarounds. I used the Gnome Live CD for the initial install. When I added the KDE Desktop to that configuration, I could then log into the KDE desktop normally.

Next, we discussed what might be changed to increase testing participation so that the workload might be diversified. We think there is increased testing with the RC1-2 releases, but many of the bugs reported at this stage are not fixed by the time that the Gold Master is frozen. We realize that there is little opportunity to stretch the timing of the release schedule, thus we need to attract users at an earlier stage. As some testers might be reluctant to try the Milestone releases, we are proposing that MS6 be relabeled as a "Beta". We would then have MS1-5, Beta, and RC1-2 as the stages. The relative timing of the steps would be the same, only that one stage would be renamed.

Our next IRC meeting will be on June 27, 2011 at 17:00 UTC when we hope to be discussing MS2.
