Introduction

Before an official Fedora release comes out, several alpha, beta and release candidate releases - known collectively as pre-releases - are made available. You can contribute by installing these pre-releases and testing them. Testing will involve executing test cases to verify installation on different hardware platforms and gathering installation test feedback. Everyone is encouraged to test anaconda and share your ideas, tests, and results.

Scope and Approach

Testing will include:

Timing of installation test events

Installation test events occur before milestone releases (e.g. Alpha, Beta, Final). Often this includes a Test compose followed by one or more Release candidate composes. A detailed list of QA events for Fedora 30 can be found at http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-30/f-30-quality-tasks.html

Test plan

The Fedora 30 Installation Test plan is available at QA:Fedora 30_Install_Test_Plan.

The test plan is designed to ensure that the release under test complies with the Fedora_Release_Criteria. If the criteria are adjusted or updated, new test cases should be created and no longer valid ones removed as appropriate.

Results

Test results are recorded in a separate page for each test run. To ensure consistency, new test result pages are created using a template page. Test results for each release of Fedora are linked below.
