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 execute test cases to verify installation on different hardware platforms and gather installation test feedback. Everyone is encouraged to test anaconda and share your ideas, tests, and results.

Scope and Approach

Testing will include:

  • Manually execute test cases using DVD, CDROM, rawhide boot or live image media
  • Automatically execute test cases with auto-test system. More information about install auto-test, please see Is Anaconda Broken Proposal
