This page is intended to gather feedback from the Fedora QA community on things that worked well and things that could have been better with the testing of Fedora 19. The feedback will be used as a basis for identifying areas for improvement for Fedora 19 testing. Any thoughts, big or small, are valuable. If someone already provided feedback similar to what you'd like to add, don't worry ... add your thoughts regardless.

Things that went well

  • Adamwill (talk) - Closest release to planned schedule ever(?) Our efforts to start testing earlier and be more aggressive in finding all blockers as early as possible seem to be helping.
  • Adamwill (talk) - Testing load seems to be spreading out again after being concentrated on a few people for some recent releases.

Could have been better

  • Adamwill (talk) - We forgot to test Secure Boot until very late.
  • Adamwill (talk) - We nearly missed a significant blocker in text mode due to not having enough coverage for it. It's nearly as fully-featured as GUI mode now: we need to find a way to test it more extensively.
  • Adamwill (talk) - Test cases are starting to bit rot, many are written around old components or oldUI.
  • Adamwill (talk) - Some release criteria are missing enforcing test cases.
  • nonamedotc - Anaconda text install test cases could be more elaborate.


  • Adamwill (talk) - We're only ever going to get more and more drudge tests, boring tests we have to run: we really need to get some automation going to help with comprehensive test coverage.


After enough time has been given for feedback, the QA team will discuss and make recommendations on changes to prioritize for Fedora 19. This section organizes and lists the recommendations.

In order to coordinate efforts, and measure effectiveness of recommendations, please record and track any action taken in the Fedora 19 roadmap in the QA TRAC instance.
