Fedora 7 Pre-Release Test Coordination

This is an install test matrix which each test and final release is to run through. Any bugs found in this test would be considered release blockers.

This page exists to track installation testing progress of a test release. Functional testing may be tracked on a different page - watch this space for updates.

Known issues

For reference, here are the Blocker and Target bugs for this release:

Changes of note:

  • Anaconda and mkinitrd are now using mdadm to assemble software RAID arrays.
