Are you running Hardy? Join us in a new testing day!

We are pleased to announce the next Ubuntu Testing Day, that will be next Monday, November 10th.

The Ubuntu Testing day is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together with a shared goal of testing a specific set of ISO images (Alpha, Beta, RC, Gold or Point releases), a specific feature or some bugs needing verification. Taking the idea from the Ubuntu Bug Day, we want to apply the same concepts to ISO testing.

Who can join the Testing Day?
Everyone. You don’t need to be a developer. You don’t need to know how to code. Everyone is welcome. If you don’t know how to help, then just stop on by and we’ll explain everything to you. In fact, one of the objectives of the Testing Day is to help people willing to start testing Ubuntu to make it better.

Where to join the Testing Day?
Come to #ubuntu-testing on freenode IRC. We will be there day and night resolving your testing questions you might have. Normal testing activity takes place in #ubuntu-testing at other times also.

Which is the goal for this testing day?
We know we just released Intrepid a week ago, but we have a lot of pending SRU bugs in Hardy needing verification. Hardy is a LTS release, and therefore it needs to be kept in shape for a longer period. SRU is the process to get updates into a stable release. Please, refer to the SRU wiki page for more information on the process.

Please, join us next Monday and help to make Ubuntu even better!


  1. I would consider it, but as a Linux novice, can’t find any instructions I can make sense of. Nice invite but like many other things in Ubuntu, it might help to say what knowledge is required (and in this case the answer is not none whatever the more experienced may think).

  3. I’ve been living in Hardy since Beta, and am quite happy here. And you’re in luck:I’m not a developer, I don’t know how to code, and I don’t know how to help. But I do know how to get lost, dig in the forum asking and getting help, and I might be a good guinea pig for this.

    But you know what? I couldn’t find “#ubuntu-testing on freenode IRC” if it bit me on the leg. Is there an intro site somewhere? (I live a need-to-know life, and I’ve never needed to know this before …)
