Fedora 7 Test 3 Pre-Release Test Coordination
This is the Fedora default QA matrix against which every test and final release is to run through. Any bugs found in this test would be considered release blockers. This page is going to be used to help coordinate testing of pre-F7 trees in an effort to be more clear about where things stand.
This page exists to track testing progress of a tree before its release. After release, there will be another page for tracking more in-depth testing of the distribution and its features - watch this space for a link.
Generic Release Criteria
Current Testing Tree
development repo is a daily snapshot of the current testing tree.
For network installs, you can use the boot.iso in the images/ directory.
Unfortunately, network issues make it nearly impossible to release daily snapshots of full ISO sets. Fortunately we now have software tools that allow you to create your own iso sets. See ["QA/7/BuildingISOs"] .
For reference, here are the Blocker and Target bugs for this release:
- Blocker - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=FC7Blocker
- Target - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=FC7Target
The following bugs have been found. Please include a link to the bug in bugzilla. The ReleaseEngineering team will make the call as to whether bugs are a test release blocker or not.
- anaconda traceback when doing TUI install in French or other non-English languages - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/233662
- Hitting 'Add additional repositories' button causes install to hang forever - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/234263
Other known issues:
- yum depsolving is really, really slow - be patient!
- IDE devices are now /dev/sdX instead of /dev/hdX - see http://kernelslacker.livejournal.com/66702.html
