The Test Day page is yet in construction. It will be ready for the Test Day - when this message is removed :) .
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 instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on the F19 feature Replacing MySQL by MariaDB. The test cases will focus on functional compatibility, upgrading issues and data migration.

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Red Hat Bugzilla usually for the component mariadb. 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. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
