What to test?
Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on testing the rewritten and updated LiveUSB Creator tool, now known as Fedora Media Writer, for different operating systems and architectures. The new tool is intended to be provided as the primary download option for Fedora 24 Workstation, with the aim of lowering the barrier for potential users to try and install Fedora.
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
- Development - Jiří Eischmann (Eischmann), Martin Bříza (Mbriza)
- Quality Assurance - Adam Williamson (adamw), Petr Schindler (pschindl), Sumantro Mukherjee (sumantro), Arvind Chembarpu (achembar)
