Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Gnome Bugzilla usually for the component gnome-boxes, or to RedHat Bugzilla for the component gnome-boxes for Fedora specific bugs (installer, integration, etc.). If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to the Smolt profile of the system you tested. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
