Fedora Language Testing Group [FLTG] is a SIG group of Fedora contributors taking care of language testing in Fedora.
Our mission is to test and review language support in Fedora and act as a bridge between translation team, i18n team and users to aid in testing languages in Fedora.
What do we do
- Test the new fedora releases for our respective languages using different test cases we have prepared.
- File the bugs and provide reference for other translators/testers.
- Add new test cases based on new bugs filed and new packages.
- Prepare the ISO for testing in consultation with the release-engineering team.
- Coordinate and conduct both i18n (with the help of Fedora i18n team) and 110n test days.
- Based on the ISO selected for testing, review the test cases.
- Keep informed the l10n team about new issues, helping them to improve the testing.
- Submit the report on test days and collect feedback from testers.
Types of Test Days
- To improve the quality of Fedora in our native languages.
- To develop more test cases for easy and planned testing.
- To help the translators/testers find the common bugs.
- To have a collective testing platform where all translators can be together and test to improve their product with less bugs and errors.
- A point of contact for all testers to get more information on testing events, test cases and common bugs.
