Introduction

This document describes the tests that will be created and used to verify the functions/components 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

Testing will include:

  • Manually execute test cases using a live image of rawhide or DVD/CD install media
  • Manually/kickstart boot the installation program to execute the installation
  • Automatically execute installation testing via cobbler/koan etc..,cobbler guide and scripts,please refer to cobbler

Items outside the scope of this test plan include:

  • Functional verification of software installed on the system
  • Installation from media not generated by fedora release engineering
