[opensuse-testing] Weekly News for July 30
The Testing Core Team held an IRC meeting at 17:00 UTC, July 25 on Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network. irc://

Our first agenda item was for discussion of our experiences with 12.1 MS3. The test of a patched plasmoid applet that fixes at least part of Bug #702461 was reported. The new version recognized the network devices; however, it was unable to make a wireless connection. Networking with a wire-connected device was OK. Wireless worked fine on a Gnome desktop.

Our second agenda item concerned our upcoming Open Bugs Day to be held on August 21, 2011 from 0:00 to 23:59 UTC. This date is 10 days after the scheduled release of 12.1 MS4. The emphasis will be on testing whether bugs reported for 11.4 are still in 12.1. They will be fixed if possible, or updated to reflect the fact that they still exist. All individuals interested in making 12.1 be an exceptionally good release are welcome. As we get closer to the date, more specific instructions will be posted. As usual, we will have special on-line tools to help you select a bug for investigation. In preparation for OBD, we discussed our plans for publicizing the event, and updated the web page for the event, which is at

Our next IRC meeting will be at 17:00 UTC, August 15 on Channel #opensuse-testing on the Freenode IRC Network. irc:// We will discuss our experiences with MS4 and finish the planning for Open Bugs Day.
