This document describes the tests that will be created and used to verify the installation of Fedora 12.

The goals of this plan are to:

  • Organize the test effort
  • Communicate the planned tests to all relevant stake-holders for their input and approval
  • Serve as a base for the test planning for future Fedora 12 releases

Test Strategy

  • Fedora QA project use test day to organize testing of software as it is released into Rawhide, updates-testing, or as it appears in a supported public release. test day will focus on testing on a specific feature or component of Fedora. Test day will be announced in fedora-test-list or can see at [[]]. These tests include manual or automatic testing.
  • Fedora QA project tracks test results against Fedora 12 milestone Release Candidate builds.Fedora 12 milestones can be found at Releases/12/Schedule.
  • After testing,we will work with developers to fix,close bugs and give corresponding feedback. If you'd like to help making Fedora better,please join us in test day or other Fedora QA activities

New features of Fedora 12

Need confirmation on the following list of features for Fedora 12

The following list of features was obtained from Anaconda/Features. Test plans for these features will be designed/developed on each feature page.


  • The Fedora 12 release schedule is available at Releases/12/Schedule
  • Each major milestone will demand a full regression run (Alpha, Beta, Preview Release)

Community Testing

We run test day to co-ordinate focused testing on a specific feature or component in community.The Fedora 12 test day is available at QA/Test_Days/F12

Test Cases/Priority

  • We use these test cases to track test results against Fedora 12 milestone Release Candidate builds.Fedora 12 milestones can be found at Releases/12/Schedule.Test cases for Fedora 12 ,please refer to QA:Fedora_12_Install_Results_Template#Test_Areas
  • please select a test case that best matches your test environment for Fedora 12 milestone Release Candidate,post test result according to template at QA:Fedora_12_Install_Results_Template#Test_Areas
  • This test plan will use priority of 3 level for test cases
    • level 1 is intended to verify that installation is possible on common hardware using common use cases.
    • level 2 takes a step further to include more use cases.
    • level 3 captures the remaining identified use cases

Test Environment/Configs

For Fedora 12, we will execute test cases on these hardware platforms:

  • i386
  • ppc
  • x86_64
