Monday 6th October, a new Ubuntu Testing Day!

with 2 comments

We are pleased to announce the next Ubuntu Testing Day, that will be next Monday, October 6th.

The Ubuntu Testing day is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together with a shared goal of testing an specific set of ISO images (Alpha, Beta, RC, Gold or Point releases). Taking the idea from the Ubuntu Bug Day, we want to apply the same concepts to ISO testing.

Who can join the Testing Day?
Everyone. You don’t need to be a developer. You don’t need to know how to code. Everyone is welcome. If you don’t know how to help, then just stop on by and we’ll explain everything to you. In fact, one of the objectives of the Testing Day is to help people willing to start testing Ubuntu to make it better.

Where to join the Testing Day?
Come to #ubuntu-testing on freenode IRC. We will be there day and night resolving your testing questions you might have. Normal testing activity takes place in #ubuntu-testing at other times also.

Which release we will be testing?
Apart from testing the beta ISOs, we will be focusing on testing distribution upgrades.
If you want to upgrade your Hardy system (*buntu 8.04) to Intrepid (*buntu 8.10) this is a great way to help on your way.

Also, the great and fun Marc Tardiff (cr3) will be giving a session at the #ubuntu-classroom IRC channel (15h UTC) about the testing infrastructure, giving an overview on the tools available to make Ubuntu testing easier and funnier.

Please, join us next Monday and help to make Ubuntu even better!

Why did I create a hackergotchi for myself?

Well, my appearance doesn’t get close to a guy with a goatee beard…
