    Busy testing week ahead

    Lots of stuff going on; Nicholas, or someone, is uploading the 12.04.2 iso-testing images as I type (not all images are ready yet):

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...nes/254/builds

    And Cadence week #6 begins tomorrow:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Cadence/Raring

    And both Edubuntu and Kubuntu have a Raring Alpha 2 dropping on the 14th:

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...nes/255/builds

    So it's a good time to test and report bugs on the QA tracker

    I have a few Precise bugs that I'm going to try and focus on first ........ hope I have time to get in some Lubuntu Cadence testing also

    Wow, I see they've updated the Raring i386 mini.iso:

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...7095/downloads

    And even the Precise mini.iso:

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...6919/downloads

    So maybe we should call it, "name your poison" week

    I test everyday in some capacity or another.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Do you record your bugs on the QA Tracker? I really do find that to increase the bug heat substantially

    Of course there is never a 100% guarantee that any bug will be fixed but I believe no effort is truly wasted.

    My hottest bug for Raring is:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...y/+bug/1080701

    Everything I use in Lubuntu has just been working other than that

    If you notice: the Website says NOT to begin 12.04.2 Testing yet, just to clarify things, so no one jumps the gun and has a False Start.

    Correction: It says to start testing 12.04.2 BUT Do NOT Start 13.04 Alpha 2 just yet, my Mistake.

    Sorry guys for the Mix Up, Avast 8.0 Public Beta is making Windows 7 run so SLOW that I am having to use my Sprint Apple IPhone 5 with 4G LTE just to post here!

    I guess I should more clearly state my reasoning behind posting notices like this

    I've truly found that getting the QA tag added to a bug report is always beneficial. That doesn't mean there's a guarantee that a bug will be fixed, but it does at least get the bug on the radar so-to-speak

    The best thing is to subscribe to the tests you're truly willing to perform at the QA Tracker, then you'll get a notification when the milestone images are ready to test.

    But "Cadence Testing" changed things. Since there are no actual "alpha" images for most flavors you just have to depend on mailing lists and the posted schedule.

    Right now I'm much more concerned with 12.04.2 than I am with Raring because Lucid (desktop version) will soon reach EOL, so we'll have a lot more users upgrading to Precise

    I get bugs that aren't in the prescribed QA tests, write launchpad bugs, which aren't looked at by the relevant developer(s). How do you put a QA tag on bugs that aren't in the prescribed list?

    Thanks, Jerry
