Kernel 5.1 Test Week starting 2019-05-13

Monday, 2019-05-13 through Friday 2019-05-18 is the Kernel 5.1 Test Week!

Test Days/Weeks are planned events when a specific feature is tested and the community tries to report issues. Kernel being one of most crucial bit of the system, testing it for a significant amount of time is very necessary!

Why Test Kernel?

The kernel team is working on Kernel 5.1.  This version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora.
This version will also be the shipping Kernel for Fedora 29, 30 and upcoming pre-release Fedora 31. So it’s to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.
It’s also pretty easy to join in: all you’ll need is an iso (which you can grab from the wiki page).

We need your help!

All the instructions are on the wiki page, so please read through and come help us test! As always, the event will be in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.

Test Day: Fedora Media Writer 2019-04-30

Tuesday, 2019-04-30, is the Fedora Media Writer Test Day! We need your help to test Fedora Media Writer!

Why test Fedora Media Writer?

This instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Fedora Media Writer. Fedora Media Writer, is used for creating bootable flashdrives on different operating systems and architectures. The tool is intended to be provided as the primary download option since Fedora 25, with the aim of lowering the barrier for potential users to try and install Fedora. In this test day, we aim to test both Fedora 29, Fedora 30 and Pre-Release boot-media creation on Windows, OS X, and Fedora, specifically targeting ARM-bootable media.

We need your help!

All the instructions are on the wiki page, so please read through and come help us test! As always, the event will be in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.

Fedora 30: Let’s have an awesome release party!

Fedora 30  is about to be out.It’s time to plan their activities around the release.

The most common activity to do is organize release parties. A release party is also a great way for other contributors in the community to get involved with advocacy in their local regions. Learn how to organize a release party and get a badge for it in this article.

Organizing a release party

How do you organize a release party? There is a page that has the full details. You will find hints of what you can start doing now and how to do it. Anyone with a valid FAS account can host a Release Party!!

Hosting Release Party

When you’re ready, you need to do a few simple things:

1. Send an email to the mindshare mailing list and let the world know what you’re planning. Ambassadors and others may have suggestions or advice that can improve your event. This also lets you find others who may want to help you with your event.
2. Open a ticket in the Mindshare Issue Tracker and let people know about your event.If your event needs financial or swag support (see below) this is a crucial (and mandatory) step. Please use the Release Party template.
3. Once your party is approved, do the following: calendar, so others can easily find it.
4. Request a QR code to award the Release Party Attendee badge. You can do it by opening an issue at mindshare pagure .
5.  Put in a swag request ticket in the Fedora Budget Repo.
6.  Finalize your plans and hold your party.
7.  After your party, write an event report. An event report lets the community know what happened and how it went. Ideally your report will be shared on the Fedora Community Blog, but posting it on your own blog and the Fedora Planet is fine too. If your event requires financial or swag support, this is mandatory. These reports should help us understand what happened and how the party went. Ideas for what went well and what could be improved are welcome.
8. If you have financial assistance approved, file a reimbursement ticket in the Fedora Budget Repository

Have fun and earn a badge

Just make sure you write a report of it (only people with reports get a badge awarded) and have some nice pictures with happy faces. Then you will surely earn the badge for release party organizers.

Test Day: Fedora Silverblue

Why test Fedora Silverblue

Fedora Silverblue is a new variant of Fedora Workstation with rpm-ostree at its core to provide fully atomic upgrades. Furthermore, Fedora Silverblue is immutable and upgrades as a whole, providing easy rollbacks from updates if something goes wrong. Fedora Silverblue is great for developers using Fedora with good support for container-focused workflows.

Additionally, Fedora Silverblue delivers desktop applications as Flatpaks. This provides better isolation/sandboxing of applications, and streamlines updating applications — Flatpaks can be safely updated without reboot.
