How to test?
Run the tests

If you run out of test cases, congratulations! But that's not the end! You can still help out by playing around with the tool in whatever ways you can think of: try out all the things you can find, and try writing different Fedora images with it. If you have systems with different Windows versions, try running the tool on all of them. Get creative! Any problems you find please file a bug, or report to the IRC channel.
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component mediawriter. Please also make the bug 'block' the tracker bug for issues with the tool, by putting '1310542' in the Blocks: field. 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.
