This test case checks that appropriate artwork and release identification are in place throughout a typical deployment and boot of Fedora.
How to test
- Install or deploy the Fedora release you wish to test, with the desired package set. Set a root password, but do not create a standard user account during installation.
- Boot the installed system, observing any artwork and release identification that appear in the bootloader and during the boot process.
- If a 'first boot' utility runs, use it to create a user account, while observing any artwork and release identification.
- Observe any artwork and release identification at the login screen. Particularly, if doing a graphical install, check the background image. Log in as the created user account (if a 'first boot' tool ran) or as root (if not). Observe any artwork and release identification that appear during and immediately after login - again, if doing a graphical install, particularly check the desktop background.
- Check the contents of common release identification files, e.g.
- If doing a graphical install, check obvious places where release artwork and identification may be found, e.g. the control center Details pane on GNOME.
- Any form of release identification that refers to a distribution name must state 'Fedora'.
- Any form of release identification that refers to a release phase / milestone (e.g. Alpha or Beta) must refer to the correct one. For Final composes, nothing may identify the release as a pre-release.
- Any form of release identification that refers to a flavor (Server, Workstation, Cloud etc.) must refer to the correct one.
- Any form of release identification that refers to a release number must refer to the correct one.
- If the release being tested is an Alpha or Beta pre-release build, the default desktop backgrounds from the previous two stable releases may not appear as the default desktop background (or login manager background, or 'first boot' utility background, or really anywhere).
- If the release being tested is a final release or post-Beta pre-release build, the artwork used in the 'first boot' utility (if any), login manager (if any) and on the desktop (particularly the background) must be the correct and current artwork proposed for the release in question by the design team. If a background or artwork is used in the bootloader menu screen or the graphical boot process it must be either entirely generic (such as the Fedora logo) or part of the correct and current proposed artwork.
