== 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:
 
 
 
* Manually executed test cases using DVD, CDROM, rawhide boot or live image media
 
* Automatically executed test cases via the [[AutoQA]] system. For more information about automatic testing, please see [[Is_anaconda_broken_proposal|Is Anaconda Broken Proposal]]
 
 
 
== Timing of installation test events ==
 
 
 
Installation test events occur before milestone releases. Current events can be found at:
