Yes, of course feel free to test Xubuntu as well (or any other derivative). The core dev team has traditionally not focused on testing it because we don't officially support it. But part of the point of doing this forum-based testing is to expand the scope!

Jani, the head developer of Xubuntu is in the Ubuntu Core Developer team. And Xubuntu is listed as a related project on the Ubuntu homepage. Xubuntu meta packages in main.

I think it's supported ;)

And we shouldn't be ignored so much ;)

It is supported in the the sense that Canonical supports the growth and development of Ubuntu and since packages are in main they will get bug fixes during the supported life time of a release. However, Canonical does not offer commercial support on Xubuntu as a stand-alone solution, though other service providers may choose to do so.

This is the same status that both Kubuntu and Edubuntu had before they gained commercial support offerings, so it's nothing strange. And it should not deter anyone from testing it :)

Personally I like Xubuntu very much and I'm good friends with Jani. It has a good potential as an accessibility solution for example.

Reasonable enough. But the previous post said only about support, not commercial support.

Furthermore, does this mean that Canonical is backing Kubuntu and Edubuntu too? At least about Kubuntu, this is new...

So why wasn't it mentioned to be tested? :cry:

Because traditionally it has not been a focus because we were already swamped. If people step up to test it that's great! I can add it to the list :)

Did you sign up for testing Xubuntu here (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=335481)? ;)

No, because I need my computer and cannot burn CDs :( That's why I want Xubuntu to be tested by other people, but if it's not in the list...

OK, well this is a community-based testing project and as such should be shaped by the community. I will add Xubuntu to the list with the others and we can review how we should structure this after Herd 2.

Before I open a thread about this, I want to make sure if I"m not just stupid ;)
In the terminal I had to give an answer to a Y/N question.
So I typed "Y" and pressed Enter.
And then nothing happened, it just didn't recognize it at all.
I'm doing this in the wrong way or is this an issue?

You should have opened a new thread or search for that problem, because we are talking here about the CDs testing.

If you typed Y and entered, everything is fine. If nothing happened, maybe nothing should happen. If you thing there should happen something, provide us more info (what were you doing, the command, the terminal output...).

This is probably the wrong place for this question, but ...

Are you sure it said Y/N not yes/no? Sometimes you have to type 'yes'. Could you be using a keyboard layout that switches z and y?

Testing is still needed ...

We won't release Thu. 11th, looks like it might be Fri. 12th now

The relevant test images can be seen on:
Ubuntu (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Current/Ubuntu), Kubuntu (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Current/Kubuntu), Edubuntu (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Current/Edubuntu), Xubuntu (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Xubuntu/Current)

Due to a bug found in the installer (gtk part) the images for Ubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu have been remade this evening. Welcome to the release process :)

The graphical part of the LiveCD didn't work for me. The terminal works, but sudo commands don't.

The pre-release testing of Herd 2 is now complete (since Herd 2 is out) but general find-whatever-bugs-you-can testing is still valuable.
