I'm currently working on a plan to expand desktop validation testing. As
part of the discussion around this, Christoph Wickert proposed several
additions to the release criteria that seem sensible to me. I'd like to
propose we add these to the criteria for F14 and on:
* Saving passwords in the desktop default keyring (if the desktop
implements one), and retrieving passwords from the keyring, must work
* The desktop default update manager must not periodically check for
updates when the system is booted live, but must periodically check for
updates when running on an installed system
* The desktop's offered mechanisms for shutting down, logging out and
rebooting must work
Anyone have comments or objections to these? Suggestions for what
release they should come in? I'd say #1 should be final and #2 and #3
should be beta, off the top of my head.
Given that #1 should be already present for several desktops, as a
feature for any new desktops I'd expect it to be in place by Beta.
Regression testing ahead of RC->Gold should test all three to ensure
Otherwise, +1 for me.
