It's possible I'm just slow catching on, but this may be of interest to others as it was to me. I caught this at Lubuntu QA today:

Cadence Week 4 is here!

Week 4 is here, can you believe it? Starting August 3rd, it's time to test images and packages again. Now, you'll notice something a little different about the layout this time around. Thanks to your continued feedback and ideas, we've tweaked the layout even further.


http://packages.qa.ubuntu.com/qatrac...nes/300/builds

For those of you testing on the isotracker, this should look VERY familiar. In short, the testcases are laid out by product, including a section for common tests (like graphics, networking, web browsers). This means flavors are more clearly shown; and as you can see xubuntu is already laid out very nicely! The xubuntu team has been rapidly closing bugs and getting testcases for there core apps, in addition to contributing heavily towards this idea. Thank you David, Pasi, Elfy and xubuntu'ers!


Lubuntu folks, I know you too have some testcases already written and we'll need to get a sectioned sorted for you. Ping me!


Ali, and ubuntu gnome folks, let's get something up and running for you as well! You can file bugs for what needs done specific for gnome, and steal what's already been written Ping me!


The rest of the details are below. Remember, feedback is appreciated! What do you think of the changes?

So what is cadence testing? Have a look at this page to get more information:


https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Cadence

In short, as a community we're testing different things about every ~2 weeks, and share results to flesh out bugs and problem areas. The full schedule is here:


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

So what's up for testing this week? The daily images, and the default applications in ubuntu

Full details are here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Cadence/Saucy/Week4

If you need help submitting results, have a look at the ISO testing and Cadence Week testing walkthroughs.


https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Cadence/Walkthrough
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/ISO/Walkthrough

Do note that you don't need anything special to participate in cadence week testing! Both an installed version of the development branch of ubuntu (aka saucy) in a VM or on a real box, or even a live session of the lastest daily image will work.


Good luck! Thanks and Happy Testing everyone,

Nicholas
When I first read that I was confused but now in addition to the standard iso/upgrade testing:

http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker

we now have a separate space on the QA Tracker for apps:

http://packages.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker

Notice the difference?

We now have "packages.qa" in addition to "iso.qa"

I think this will prove to be a very positive change over time. Kudos to all involved in that change
