Fedora Media Writer Test Day: 2017-04-20

Thursday, 2017-04-20, is the Fedora Media Writer Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 26, we need your help to test Fedora Media Writer!

Why test Fedora Media Writer?

Today’s installment 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 for 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 25 and Fedora 26 Pre-Release boot-media creation on Windows, OS X, and Fedora, specifically targeting creation of ARM-bootable media.

Anaconda BlivetGUI Test Day: 2017-04-06

Thursday, 2017-04-06, is the Anaconda BlivetGUI Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 26, we need your help to test Anaconda BlivetGUI!

Why test BlivetGUI?

We’ll be testing the new, detailed, bottom-up configuration screen that has been long requested by users. Inclusion of blivet-gui into Anaconda finally makes this a reality. On the other hand, it adds a new option without changing the existing advanced storage configuration so users that prefer the top-down configuration can still use it. We hope to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.

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 26 Supplementary Wallpapers: Vote now!

At the end of January, the submission phase for Fedora 26 Supplementary Wallpapers opened. Now, the submission phase is closed and the voting phase is now open. If you have a FAS account and meet the CLA+1 group requirement, you can cast your vote in Nuancier.

Wallpapers for Fedora 26

We have again around 100 submissions from more then 60 different contributors, from which we will choose 16 to get packaged as supplemental wallpapers for Fedora 26. The contributors who successfully submitted their wallpaper should all now have the badge.  In case your badge was not awarded, ping gnokii in #fedora-design on freenode.

As for past contests, a lot of the participants made their first contribution to Fedora. We will continue to improve Nuancier and the submission process for supplementary wallpapers. We will also try to improve the quality of submissions. We have already improved with limiting the amount of submissions. We have also had longer phases for submissions and the time for the voting is also longer than before.

Be sure to cast your vote before April 6th, 2017 to have a say in what wallpapers are included! By participating, you can also receive a limited edition badge too. Please note, this badge must be claimed manually from you during the voting process, it is not automatically awarded. It can be not awarded afterwards, as it is not visible who has voted.
