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 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.
