Just a reminder that I am going to try and run a meetup of
proventesters in #fedora-meeting at 19:00 UTC today on
If you are a proventester I hope you can drop by. If you are not, but
are interested in whats involved in becoming one and helping test, also
please drop by.
* What's required of proventesters?
* How do you become one?
- bodhi rss feeds
- bodhi command line
- updates reports/lists.
* Focus on fedora 14 security and critpath updates. How can we move
* Is there enough interest to keep meeting?
I can understand the frustration caused by lesser-used and more-obscure
items needing karma. But is there any system at the moment which a tester
can use which (1) notifies them when items of interest are updated
(independent of a mass email) and/or (2) can scan a user's configuration and
determine what hardware and software seems to be present and/or used?
The first item can be crudely done with mail filters, but it would be nice
if there was something more polished. The latter is a bit ambitious even if
looking at loaded kernel modules, log files, last access times, etc.
Admittedly I might be a bit at fault in this case, as recent OLPC Fedora
respins use a Chrome driver we had optimized a bit instead of openchrome. I
can swap drivers and provide karma in this case if you don't care about it
coming from a respin (which currently more-or-less is following F14
I also asked a developer who had custom post-F14 builds he was testing to
verify the openchrome driver on those.
