    Final Beta Testing Event

    I wanted to cross-post this message here, because well, you all are invited! And I'd appreciate your feedback on the idea. Feel free to post here, the mailing list, or ping me if your interested in helping. Let's have a great image testing event next week!

    ------------------------------
    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...ch/003388.html
    ------------------------------------------

    I was hoping to get some feedback from everyone about us hosting an
    iso-testing event for the final beta images next week. I wanted to run
    the event a bit like we did the cadence testing livestream in the past
    (so so sad about the resulting quality of the upload ) and encourage
    new users to get involved. I see the following needs:

    Remake the isotest video on youtube (TOO LONG, and quality is not so nice )
    Touch up (if needed) the isotest walkthrough on the wiki
    Reach out to flavors, loco's, planet, greater community to encourage them to participate
    People willing to join the hangout!

    Who all would like to help on this? Any feedback or ideas on what you'd
    like to see? How does the following schedule look:

    Tuesday April 2nd:
    All day:
    people in #ubuntu-quality ready to answer questions
    people doing iso tests
    0800 UTC - 1200 UTC
    volunteers in #ubuntu-quality executing testcases and helping
    answer questions
    1000 UTC:
    g+ hangout with some community folks, doing testing
    live demos of doing an iso test -- including examples of doing
    more exotic tests like netboot, server, non-english, etc
    1800 UTC - 2200 UTC
    volunteers in #ubuntu-quality executing testcases and helping
    answer questions
    2000 UTC:
    g+ hangout with some community folks, doing testing
    live demos of doing an iso test -- including examples of doing more
    exotic tests like netboot, server, non-english, etc

    The idea is to get some folks who can make a specific timeslot commit to
    showing up so we can share that as a "good time" to be on IRC and get
    help. Of course, the whole day will be dedicated to image testing, so
    showing up anytime still works.

    What does everyone think? Anyone willing to volunteer for a time slot?
    Anyone willing to help with the other needs listed above?

    Let me know!

    Thanks everyone

    In Canada, April 2nd comes after Easter Monday which is a Holiday for some buisness aspects. (I have buisness income to prepare usually). So it is not really a good date for me , however, I will defintely drop in if I can find a couple extra hours.

    Ventrical, so should we push it back a day to Weds? Anyone else see Easter conflicts? Definitely want to make sure everyone's schedule is free

    Wednesday is better for me. (April 3rd). Monday is a bank holiday (in Canada) so Tuesday will be busy. But don't change it just for me !

    @guitara


    I zsynced the daily i386 iso yesterday and it is now working excpetionally well using standard install. Choosing F6 <nomodeset> seems to force raring to choose llvmpipe, but, up until now, it was difficult to get a standard install without using <nomodeset>. I hope all of this bodes well for Tuesday's tests!

    Re: Final Beta Testing Event

    when will the daily current .iso freeze to the beta for testing ? I'll zsync after that so that I'm testing the right one , or will the "beta" .iso be somewhere else .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    Ubuntu 13.04 hits beta on April 4th. It should be located on the cdimage site.
