Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on OpenLDAP with TLS encryption. OpenLDAP in Fedora 14 uses Mozilla NSS instead of OpenSSL crypto backend. This change should have no effect for users, but to be sure we want to test as many programs using openldap libraries (libldap) as possible.

Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

  • Development - Jan Zeleny (jzeleny), Jan Vcelak (jvcelak), Rich Megginson (rmeggins)
  • Quality Assurance - Ondrej Moris (omoris)

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • Fedora 14 system with openldap and openldap-clients packages
  • at least one of following applications installed:
TODO: a list of openldap-depending packages

How to test?

Choose one of applications in the list above and mark it on this page by putting "(taken)" in front of the list item. Perform some testing. Below is a table of features what might be tested. The table lists some features which are supported by ldap.conf file. It is most likely that your chosen program doesn't support them all.

TODO: a table will be here, we can use example table below
Config option Description Example
BASE LDAP search base dc=example,dc=com

You can use our prepared LDAP server for your testing:

TODO: server details (probably won't be available until the test day begins)

After you perform testing, it is important to report results. A special section Test Results is available. Here you should write: what program have you tested, what was tested (i.e. what tests were performed) and what was the result. After you fill this report, please remove the mark "(taken)" from the package list and add a new mark:

  • Pass pass
    in case everything was ok
  • Warning warn
    in case there was probably something wrong
  • Fail fail
    in case the test failed

In latter two cases a description what went wrong should be available in Test Results section

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 14, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager.

Kickstart / Live DVD

TODO: prepare a kickstart which might be used to install minimal Fedora 14
TODO: post here a link to download section in case testers want to install F14 from DVD

Test Results

TODO: what do we want testers to do in case they encounter any problem? Consult it? File a bug? Just write it on the page?
